Mumford & Sons are four nice British boys from well-to-do homes who dress like railroad engineers and sing four-part bluegrass harmonies. So why are they on the street corner at midnight face to face with the San Miguel County Sheriff’s Officer? “Is that a beer?” a deputy asks, eyeing the bottle in keyboardist Ben Lovett’s hand. Lovett, a 24-year-old Welshman with a face to take home to Mom, admits that it is. The officer frowns. ” You know it’s a $100 fine for open containers.” Bassist Ted Dwane says they’re sorry- they didn’t know that. The officer is quiet for a minute. “Well”, he says finally, ” I hate to see beer go to waste” He looks at his watch. ” You’ve got 15 seconds.” Bottoms up.
