Mumford and Sons: Dallas, TX

Keltin and I love a good show but typically we go to symphonies and musicals but we changed it up this time and saw Mumford and Sons at the American Airlines Center. The music was fantastic and perfect to sing along to. They opened with Guiding Light and played a nice mix of new and
