My mother-in-law is really really into music. In her next life, she will be the next Freddie Mercury. Her passion for music is infectious and always leads to incredibly fun times, dance parties, and sing-a-longs at the LeVasseur's.
In 2013, the year Marc and I got married, she got me into Mumford & Sons. (This is how out of touch I am with my own generation's music) I had heard their big hits, of course, but one day when my in-laws were visiting she brought their concert DVD, The Road to Red Rocks. Seeing them live absolutely floored me and I appreciated their lyrics, musicality, and energy in a way I never had before.
I listened to them a ton during that incredibly emotional, change-filled year, and I always associate it with that time, with our honeymoon, and I always crave it when I'm about to take off on a plane, during late summer, and when life generally has me reaching out for comfort, consoling, and spirituality.
So - I've been in a Mumford place recently. Luckily two of my favorite activities, running and yoga, lend themselves quite well to their style of music, so I have two playlists for each. Enjoy, give into the banjo, and maybe receive some comfort and inspiration.
For running, when the relentless build keeps you going (and the slower times signal a walk break!) Strictly Mumford.
For yoga, mixed in with a couple of other wonderful artists and some instrumental.
