I’m going to have to be 100% honest right of the bat. I’m NOT by any means a fan of The Lumineers. That being said, I really dig their new song “Ophelia” and jumped at the chance to cover it with my good friend Josh from my project Little Climbers.

The Lumineers have an album coming out in early April titled “Cleopatra.” Believe it or not, I’m actually looking forward to the record and plan to revisit their older stuff as I may have jumped the gun the judging this band. It happens. I admit my faults. 🙂

Behind The Lumineers Ophelia Cover

I purchased this mandolin for $70. It was one of the most random purchases I’ve ever made. But it’s been a fun cheap investment and I’ve enjoyed learning simple chords. I may spend a few bucks investing in this mandolin this year. We’ll see. Either way, it’s super fun to play and I’m glad I got to do so on this cover video.

If you haven’t yet, head on over the the Little Climbers YouTube channel and subscribe for more cover videos as well as us playing some originals.

Unfortunately, Josh is moving about an hour away from where we currently live (Tustin), so these videos may be a challenge to pump out on a consistent schedule. So with that being said, enjoy this one. Check out some older videos we’ve put up on our channel. And enjoy it while you can!
