Instruments

The band Mumford and Sons plays a very wide variety of instruments making a unique sound that attracts many. The lead singer, Marcus Mumford, plays the acoustic guitar, bass drum, and the tambourine with his feet using kick petals. He also occasionally plays the piano, mandolin, and resonator guitar. Ben Lovett primarily plays the piano, keyboard, and the accordion, as well as small percussion shakers. Winston Marshall, known as “Country,” typically plays the banjo and resonator guitar. On very rare occasions, he plays the electric bass and banjolin (mandolin/banjo combination). Last but not least, Ted Dwane, plays the upright bass, electric bass, and drums. The rest is sung by all four members and for songs like White Blank Page and Winter Winds, a few people come in to assist with horns and violins. The combination of musical instruments and poetic lyrics makes Mumford and Sons an original band.
