Mumford & Sons Share "The Weight" with Ben Howard and HAIM

On Sunday, Mumford & Sons covered The Band’s “The Weight” as part of an all-star tribute to Levon Helm at Los Angeles’ Staples Center during The Grammy Awards. They were joined by a multi-generational cast of musicians, including Elton John, T-Bone Burnett, Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard and Mavis Staples.

Last night, Mumford & Sons covered “The Weight” again at Brooklyn, NY’s Barclays Center. The band invited out their opening acts Ben Howard and HAIM for the sing-along, which closed their second sold-out performance at the venue. Mumford & Sons will celebrate Valentine’s Day at Fairfaux, VA’s Patriot Center.

Pretty damn, good. That song almost always makes me well up a little.
