Why have Mumford and Sons got mass appeal?

That song is played everywhere. It's odd, folk appealing to the masses.
Is it because they've got those beards people have at the moment and went to public school?

I am not sure. They recorded part of their first album next door to us and they came round and asked me what time I wanted them to quieten down. I said no later than 8pm I thought they were students. Ds was mortified but they all laughed!

Great story Noddy Grin
I know exactly what you mean housework. Folk in general is considered quite trendy at the moment isn't it? I almost got sick of hearing the Bellowhead single a while back as it was played so much on Radio 2.
