Must Watch: Mumford & Sons’ 12 Years Strong

Posted by Greg on Apr 25, 2019 in Movies, Music

Our favorite video platform, Vevo, and one of our favorite bands, Mumford & Sons, have released the film “Mumford and Sons: 12 Years Strong,” a documentary that provides behind-the-scenes footage of the band’s US Delta tour. One of the highlight’s of the film is an exclusive live performance of current single “Forever” featuring Americana multi-instrumentalist Jerry Douglas. That is one of just many memorable tunes, as is a look back at the 2012 album Babel and the making of their current album Delta.

Whether or not you like or appreciate Mumford & Sons, 12 Years Strong is an absolute must-watch and easily the best thing we’ve viewed this week.
