Continuing the tradition of showcasing local music with the #MusicSaturday hashtag, here’s Washington, DC area folk-rock group The WeatherVanes performing ‘They Say’.  Enjoy.

To me, the group reminds me of one of my favorite bands Mumford & Sons. What do you think? If you want to see them live, they are playing around the area and are frequently at the Birchmere and have played at the Del Ray Music Festival.
