Mumford & Sons have made simple folk songs into grand statements. Each song is a bold testimony to character and perseverance. At Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Wednesday, the British band proved they are superstars.

With just two full-length albums under their belt, “Babel” and “Sigh No More,” Mumford & Sons have done what every band dreams of: rising to extraordinary heights so early in their careers and creating a vast number of truly passionate fans. 

As soon as "Babel" began, fans roared along with the band, a raucous crowd that matched the group's intensity on stage. It was a spirited display of camaraderie between band and fans. Marcus Mumford sang every lyric with conviction, with Winston Marshall on banjo and Ted Dwane on bass.

The band continues their run of sold-out New York-area shows next week, once again at Barclays Center and later in Camden, N.J., at Susquehanna Bank Center. Being on the road seems to suit the band, especially the idea of a touring mini-festival, the “Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers,” where Mumford & Sons help put together a two-night eclectic festival that has the potential to become a fan favorite.
