Mumford And Sons

Here’s something I don’t thing anyone much expected to see: Mumford & Sons, once again performing after bassist Ted Dwane’s emergency surgery forced them to cancel their Bonnaroo headlining set, finishing up their Glastonbury performance in full Rolling Thunder Revue style. At the end of their set, Mumford covered the Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends” (more in Joe Cocker than Beatles style) with an all-star group of friends that included members of the Vaccines and First Aid Kit, as well as three members of Vampire Weekend. Ezra Koenig plays trumpet! It’s so weird! Watch it below.

Notably banjo-free!

  1. I’m pretty sure that is a saxophone that he is playing, not a trumpet.


  2. That’s a saxophone

  3. (not a trumpet)

  4. “Ezra Koenig plays trumpet!” – That’s called a saxophone.

  5. Sans one Justin Timberlake and an issue of Details magazine, it doesn’t get any more white modern than this.

  6. Didn’t he at one point play sax in the Dirty Projectors? Not so weird at all.

    • That was Chris Tomson, I think. But yeah, it’s not that weird that Ezra plays sax. Most musicians these days play several instruments. It’s still cool, though.

  7. Why the fuck are you posting shit about Mumford and Sons in the first place?

  8. Less Mumford and sons more The Courtney’s or anything else being put out by Burger Records

  9. Some people like the Joe Cocker version more. I already knew Mumford and Sons do.
