The year couldn’t be off to a better start for folk rockers Mumford and Sons. Yesterday, the band announced plans for their summer Gentlemen of the Road Stopover shows, and on Sunday (Feb. 10), they’ll perform at the Grammys, where they’re nominated for six awards. As if all that weren’t enough, the band stopped in Boston last night (Feb. 6) for the first of a handful of sold-out arena dates they’ll play in North America before taking their show overseas.

With an unassuming but masterful stage presence, Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett, Winston Marshall and Ted Dwane — along with a horn section — hit the stage at the TD Garden, which sold out within minutes of tickets going on sale. Without a lot of fanfare, the band ripped into their set, letting the music speak for itself.

The pure musicianship of the four members cannot be overstated. The Mumfords are seasoned multi-instrumentalists, and each song was a whirlwind of swirling soundscapes that played out like a fast-paced game of musical chairs. As keys were swapped out for banjos and accordions bolstered the mandolin and string bass, Mumford and Sons effortlessly wove together their tunes, all of which the crowd graciously ate up.

It’s safe to say the cat is out of the bag on these guys. Fans have embraced their folk sensibilities, and their popularity continues to soar. Although the rest of the shows on the U.S. leg of this tour are already sold out, fans in North America will have a second chance to indulge in the Mumford magic this summer, when their Gentlemen of the Road shows make stops in Ohio, Oklahoma, Florida and Canada. Until then, check out some of our photos from the first night of the tour in Boston below.
