Mumford and Sons made a surprise appearance at the Newport Folk Festival on Saturday, marking their first full band performance of 2018. Over the course of their 15-song set, they performed a number of covers and were accompanied by several special guests.
Most notably, the Mumfords covered Radiohead’s “All I Need” with Phoebe Bridgers. Watch fan-shot footage of the performance below.
Mumford and Songs were also joined by Brandi Carlie for a cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Boxer” and Maggie Rogers, who sang her song “Alaska”. The set concluded with a performance of “The Weight” featuring Mavis Staples, Carlile, Rodgers, Bridgers, Phil Cook, and MC Taylor.
