Mumford & Sons at Red Rocks, 8/28/12


Mumford & Sons played the first of two sold-out Red Rocks shows last night for an exuberant audience eager to sing along with every word, and the British folk-pop quartet gave them plenty of fodder, treating fans to most of the songs in their slowly expanding repertoire, including tunes from the forthcoming Babel. From the excitement and inexhaustible energy of this crowd, you'd hardly guess this young band has been around barely five years.
