One style of live wedding band that has been highly sought after these past few years is that of English folk music rockers, Mumford & Sons.
When you consider the fact that us Brits go bonkers over festival season, it’s easy to see why the Mumford & Sons style band has become so popular. Pair that with the rise of alternative wedding venues and barns that lend themselves perfectly to the ‘boho’ and ‘wedstival’ style and it’s no surprise that this trend is still on the up.
It might be a tad tricky to book the real thing or even get hold of the guys… thankfully there are some absolutely outstanding wedding bands these days that have modelled themselves after our favourite folk rockers. Here are 6 of the best to get you started.
