Mumford and Sons in Louisville

Last week, Mumford and Sons performed a show up in Louisville, KY.  It's only about a 3-hour drive, and their show at the Ryman was so amazing that I knew I couldn't pass up a chance to see them again.  So a friend and I got tickets and made the trek up there for the evening.

It was at an outdoor stage on the riverfront, and everything was general admission.  At first we thought we'd plant ourselves near the stage.  We saw Nashville band Apache Relay open from super close.


But after that set, we decided it just wasn't worth dealing with the lack of personal space that exists that close to the stage, so we moved a bit further back.

Dawes performed next, and Marcus Mumford join them for "When My Time Comes" so that was pretty neat.


Then it was time for the main event.  Mumford and Sons played almost all of their debut album along with 4-5 of the new songs off of the album that is going to be released next month.

I got some really cool shots of them on the video screens.






It was a really great show, though it was WAY different than seeing them at the Ryman.  You just really can't compare the two experiences.  Nonetheless, I'm glad we went up there and saw them.  They really are just an amazing band to see live.
