Mumford & Sons will hit the road this spring for a tour of North America that will wind through the U.S. and Canada intermittently through September. The English folk-rockers kick off their latest outing May 21st at Calgary's Scotiabank Saddledome and wrap up on June 20th at  the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado. They'll also be stopping by Bonnaroo on June 15th.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
