Winston Marshall was the banjo player in the popular rock band, Mumford & Sons, from 2007-2021.
In March, Winston tweeted “Congratulations Andy Ngo. Finally had the time to read your important book. You’re a brave man.” Facing strong backlash from the Left for his tweet, he apologized to protect his band members. In June, he wrote an article on Medium where he explained the difficult decision to leave Mumford & Sons.
Winston is the co-founder of Hong Kong Link Up, a non-profit organization which aims to link up British residents with Hong Kongers arriving in the UK.
