From instant success to a cancelled Banjo player!


Echoing the 70s sounds of Joni Mitchell, Simon & Garfunkel, John Martyn, Crosby Stills and Nash, and Neil Young, there was from 2004 to 2014, a folk revival in the U.S. and the U.K.

Similar acoustic artists and bands entered the scene, starting with Ray LaMontagne in 2004, Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver in 2008, The Lumineers (2012), and Vance Joy (2014).

With Mumford & Sons releasing their debut right in the middle of this in 2009, and the follow-up in 2012, their timing was impeccable. With the biggest tunes including Sigh No More, The Cave, Little Lion Man, and their signature song, I Will Wait, Mumford & Sons seemingly couldn’t fail.

Two more albums followed in 2015 and 2018 and even though no significant tunes appeared, the band just kept touring around the world. As an established act, nothing seemed to be able to hurt them.

Then the pandemic happened and this must have gotten to one of their members who had a wobble, thinking he could express support for someone controversial on Twitter.

After just one little tweet, Winston Marshall had to leave the band in 2021 as he supported someone opposing the organization Antifa using Twitter. His wife had left him a year earlier, but the connection between the two events is unclear. Winston is now a podcaster.

We’re all eagerly waiting for what Mumford & Sons are going to do next, their lyrics will, for sure, be scrutinized.  If cancelled, will they hook up with Winston and his banjo again?
