Mumford & Sons Guitarist Quits to Speak Freely on Politics

In a message posted to Medium, guitarist and banjo player Winston Marshall, 33, discussed the political controversy sparked last March when he published a tweet praising Andy Ngo’s work on his book, “Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy.”

The guitarist for English folk rock band Mumford & Sons announced he’s leaving the group Thursday, citing a desire to speak freely on politics without his band suffering repercussions.
