Mumford certainly did the Ryman justice instrumentally since they predominantly play acoustic guitar, stand-up bass, and banjo, which is why they have staked their claim in the folk genre. But they play the hell out of those instruments, and bring a strong backing of vocals, which really gives the group their rock undertones.
The show didn't play out quite as planned however as the group stated their nervousness for performing on the Ryman stage several times. It certainly had some affect on the groups lead singer Marcus Mumford as he struggled with the lyrics as well as a bout of coughs on a few of the songs performed which resulted in the songs ending prematurely. I've never been to a live show before where the artists had to take a 5 minute break off stage to regroup during the middle of a set. Some fans were critical of this (And who wouldn't be on Music City's biggest stage) but for me personally it did not noticeably degrade the performance. I'm sure it would have had a larger effect on me if I was more of a follower of Mumford's music or I had a keen liking to some of the shortened songs. However, I personally thought the missteps made for a better connection with the crowd on hand as the group shared their personal thoughts on what its like performing live and dealing with a nervous mind.
NOTE: Mumford played two new unreleased songs. I really enjoyed both. Look for a great second album as summer nears. The release date has not yet been announced.

The Nashville based husband and wife duo benefit artisticly from having different musical influences/backgrounds, as well as having common beliefs and interests. They describe their latest album release titled "Faint Not" as a "journey of faith" and an "honest telling of our relationship with the Lord and with each other". In contrast, one of their most recognizeable songs titled "One-Eyed Cat" playfully pokes fun at the couple's differences in interest and lifestyle. The end product of these similarities and differences equates in to a well-rounded musical offering that can currently be acquired for free from several different sources!
If you go to the Jenny & Tyler website they have a "Free" section on their site that offers up over 20 of their songs at no cost. Including their latest album in its entirety! You can get a sample of the duo's sound by viewing their newest video for the title track of their latest album shown below.
NOTE: If you enjoy playing the acoustic guitar you can also check out the "Chords" section on their site. It shows the chord progression for all of their music. A really cool offering. One that I appreciate!

Big news coming from a band that is about to make some noise. The trio that call themselves FUN has released their first album "Aim and Ignite" as a free download. This album was initially release on August 25th 2009 and has garnered the group a good amount of fanfare for their creative music process. Fun stays true to their name with upbeat lyrics and sound, but their genre is harder to pinpoint. Drawing influences from Queen and the Beach Boys as well as channeling sounds from their previous bands (The Format, Anathallo, and Steel Train).
Fun is offering a free download of their first album in anticipation of the release of their sophomore album titled "Some Nights" on February 21st. You might recognize the first single off of this album "We Are Young" from the Super Bowl stuntman commercial for the Chevy Sonic. Check out the official music video for "We Are Young" below and use the widget to preview and download the groups first album "Aim and Ignite". Great music, at an even better price.
