Say what you will about Civil War Wave or the immense popularity of The Lumineers, but before you hate on the Grammy-nominated Colorado-based band, keep in mind that they’d been at this for seven years before “Ho Hey” had played on any form of rock radio. As the the most popular band playing this year’s Mountain Jam (at least in terms of mainstream appeal), The Lumineers had a lot to live up to, especially since they were opening for the veteran juggernaut Gov’t Mule. From my vantage point, I saw a band that knew where they came from, were grateful as hell for where they were at, and gave the very full Saturday crowd a set of music that ought to have shaken free a few of the doubters. If sincerity and good feeling is this band’s currency, they spent plenty of it as they thanked everyone from Warren Haynes to the ASL interpreter, and took some time in the set to hop into the crowd and play a few songs from among us. As to the set itself, nobody will be shocked to learn that their big hit got played to huge applause, but their covers of Dylan and the Talking Heads, as well as the Colorado bluesman Sawmill Joe, also brought the house down. Whether The Lumineers’ big radio run will continue is anybody’s guess, but this band has done their part to set down roots that will outlast the fickle taste of the masses.

I recorded this set with MBHO cardiod microphones from the taper’s section. There is one volume adjustment that is audible during “Classy Girls”; otherwise the sound is excellent. Enjoy!
