One thought on “Who are Mumford and Sons?

  1. Red Rocks? You have to be OK, then. Your blog tag line is excellent.
    Post a few thoughts once a week/every other week – if only a line or two from songs (which I will explore….Ireland, NZ and the Aussie do have good taste). Shows blog is still active and a real one – readers will revisit
    Maybe put a few strokes on an “about” page so the blog looks not spam
    Sorry, not to nag. Wishing you continued success.
