A bit about The Flowerpot Sessions

All is seemingly and unusually quiet on the Mumford & Sons front for a brief spell. However rest assured; things have been bubbling away nicely beyond the gaze of the w.w.web. And in particular Ben has been hard at work on one of his latest projects for Communion – the label he co-founded with Kev Jones and Ian Grimble – The Flowerpot Sessions. You can take a look at the artwork and read a bit more about the project below.

 The Flowerpot Sessions took place during a week of blissful sunshine last summer and was a genuinely unique ‘were-you-there?/I-was-there’ experience. Ben, Kev and Ian invited a whole bunch of musicians and friends down to the North London pub (sadly now closed, but reincarnated as The Wheelbarrow a little up the road) where artists – including Sarah Blasko, Marcus Foster, Matthew & The Atlas, Mt. Desolation, Pete Roe and loads more – collaborated by day and performed together by night. All of the ‘Sons themselves did in fact either play or watch at various points throughout the week.


Anyway, now the album is wrapped ready to be released on 30th May. There’s a special edition version that comes with a DVD documentary too, if that tickles your fancy, and when you ‘got the time, take a little look at the very cool animated and especially dedicated website www.flowerpot.communionmusic.co.uk.

    (oops – went over the character limit with all my sappy pontificating) – music is meant to be shared. So even though I have never met any of you, thank-you so much for sending some good vibes into the world that have somehow found their way into my life all the way here in the Midwest. x Jennifer

    Dear Ben, Marcus, Winston, and Ted (as well as everyone involved in Communion),
    I’d just like to thank all of you for supporting music. My friends and I are studying classical music all over the U.S. and Europe right now – but it’s collaborations like these that inspire us to keep at everything, playing with each other, playing with people we’ve never met, and doing whatever we can to get our music out there. I really appreciate your dedication to honesty and communication – music is meant to be shared. So even though I’ve never met any of you, thanks for sending some good vibes into the world that have somehow found their way into my life all the way here in the Midwest…

    x Jennifer

    Thanks for the lovely animation. I’m always on the lookout for new music or books, and this site may keep me occupied for some time. Peace, Julie.
