SXSW Ends on a High Note with Mumford and Sons Performance!
The busiest SXSW ended with a quote “hippie freakout” for a Mumford & Sons documentary premiere that ended with a massive live performance- complete with a marching band.
Talk about going big or going home. The music documentary “Big Easy Express” premiered at the Austin festival, which follows the journey of British folk rockers Mumford & Sons, LA indie-pop group Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and Nashville’s Old Crow Medicine Show as they go on a six-city tour.
One of the stops in the film was in Austin, which of course, sent the crowd into a cheering frenzy. The highlight of the Austin performance in the film was when the Mumford guys played with the Austin High School marching band.
Not to be disappointed, all the musicians played a 5-song acoustic set after the premiere. Then, Mumford and Sons reenacted the highlight of the film by bringing the entire Austin High School marching band up for the last number.
