From The Vault: Mumford & Sons boot-stomp through Seattle

Coming at you straight from 2010

June 23, 2016

In honor of the #ThrowbackThursday, The End staff chooses some of our favorite past EndSessions to pull 'from the vault' for another listen, supported by Elysian Brewing Company.

On the heels of releasing their new EP, Johannesburg (released June 17), recorded with African musicians and heavily influenced by African sounds (think Vampire Weekend, Paul Simon), we look back to a folkier time with Mumford & Sons. 

Back in 2010, a year after releasing their debut album Sigh No More, Mumford & Sons swung through Seattle and played a small, exclusive EndSession for a few fans. From playing small, sold-out rooms in Seattle to selling out some of the biggest venues available in the world, it's easy to say we didn't exactly know how big they were going to be when they played "Little Lion Man" for us back then, but we are sure glad they did.

Check out Mumford & Sons playing "Little Lion Man" at an EndSession in October of 2010 right here in Seattle.
