Elvis Costello & Mumford & Sons

When the Sasquatch Festival came to Washington State last month, nu-grass superstars Mumford & Sons — who, fuck you guys, are OK — were headliners, and Elvis Costello was also on the bill. And the anti-poverty initiative Agit8 brought both acts together to film a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “The Ghost Of Thom Joad,” giving the song a soft and mythic reading and throwing a bit of Woody Guthrie’s “Do Re Mi” in there as well. Watch the performance below.

Shout out to whoever thought to take advantage of the Sasquatch-area scenery; this thing looks great.

  1. I’m not sure how to feel about this.

  2. I’ve never been a Mumford & Sons fan, but always loved Costello and Springsteen and I’ve got to say that this is fantastic.
