In Britain, their success came with a side-order of opprobrium – their twee, faux-rustic image was mocked everywhere from Vice to Viz (“Mumford & Sons – they tour the English countryside in their rustic turbo jet-powered haywain”) – but in the US, a country less minded to sneer at their public-school educations…
