I’ve had “Little Lion Man” playing on repeat in my car for two days. I am not ashamed of disclosing that. And this morning, that song, and maybe the nice and humid morning drive to work, reminded me of the Mumford & Sons set at Wakarusa 2010 (aka the best lineup that Wakarusa has and, most likely, will ever have). Man, the memory of that show still makes me so happy. I watched the show alone after shooting the first three songs. I made my way to the front row and then… bliss. That was a nice crowd, everyone was letting me go in front of them when seeing how I was struggling to see over their heads (I’m 5’2″). This is what I wrote about the set:
The set began with “Sigh No More” and the crowd roared. It was the perfect set, balanced with beloved hits and new songs like “Bellow My Feet,” “Lover of the Light,” and “Lovers Eyes.” Bringing it to the grand closing with “The Cave.” I’m sure I wasn’t the only one on cloud nine at that point. I’m still smiling. I’m positive this set brought the biggest crowd to the main stage. Mumford, Winston, Lovett, and Dwane, along with other supporting musicians, did an excellent job that day. The intimate lyrics and their love for their music made the Wakarusa stop an unforgettable show.
