In the 60s, when Folk melded with Pop, it gave the world Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Buffalo Springfield, The Mamas & Papas and The Byrd’s.
That genre has been re-molded over time; one of the groups with that folksy sound today is the award winning U.K. foursome Mumford & Sons, who have had continued success following their “Little Lion Man” #1 Alt hit, 10-years ago.
Their latest, “Guiding Light” has that glorious Pop/Folk sound from the 60’s and 70’s, with echoes of “My Back Pages” a Dylan penned song that was the Byrds last Top 40 hit (1967).
‘Cause even when there is no star in sight
You’ll always be my only guiding light
“Guiding Light” is #2 on Adult Alternative radio and #7 on the Alternative format.
In mid-November, the group releases “Delta,” their newest album, and also embarks on a 60-city world tour.
