MUMFORD & SONS, “Sigh No More,” Universal UK. 12 tracks.
If there’s a rock fan in your life and you want to bring him or her a little closer to bluegrass, you might start with Mumford & Sons’ “Sigh No More.”
The 3-year-old London-based band melds country, bluegrass, folk and rock into a sound that bears a slight resemblance to bluegrass.
It’s close enough to hopefully make a few rock fans curious enough to check out some bluegrass albums.
The album’s been around for about a year now, but it should still be in stores.
The band has been nominated for a best new artist Grammy and the song, “Little Lion Man” has been nominated for best rock song.
