I have recently found a picture of the Lumineers on the tumblr site – the trio with mandolin, cello and guitar made me curious. This folk-rock and Americana band was founded more than 10 years ago, but during the last year it became so popular that it even got two Grammy nominations for 2013. Their most popular youtube videos have got more than a million views, and the concerts of the Lumineers are mostly sold out today.
One of the most successful songs by the Luminieers is Ho Hey.
The Blogotheque has made several great videos with the Lumineers for their series A Take Away Show, here are the first two videos:
