Mumford & Sons Perform "The Cave, "White Blank Page," "Little Lion Man," and "Winter Winds"
The local City Newspaper announces an upcoming performance of the band:
- On this side of the pond, we define bands that blend genres including folk, country, or bluegrass as Americana. Quartet Mumford & Sons is Americana too, but owing to its U.K. origins, it adds some Shakespeare and Celtic swagger. The result is literate and rustic roots music that’s earned the band numerous Grammy nominations and Billboard Music Awards. With only one album, 2010’s “Sigh No More,” Mumford & Sons is as close to an overnight sensation as it gets. Lead singer-guitarist-troubadour Marcus Mumford’s voice is the key. It lends an emotive cathedral-like quality that stands out in a crowd while his sons — who aren’t really his sons — create a cohesive dynamic and occasionally raucous texture. With Aaron Embrey and Dawes.
Mumford & Sons performs Tuesday, August 7, 7 p.m. at CMAC, 3355 Marvin Sands Drive, Canandaigua. $35-$45. cmacevents.com
