The Lumineers were the most-recent musical guest on The Tonight Show: At Home Edition.

Equipped with a piano and acoustic guitar, Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites gave us an acoustic, stripped down version of the band's incredible track “Salt And The Sea.”

“Thank you so much Jimmy Fallon for having us, this us playing from our hours to yours,” Schultz said before they started the song. Like many recent videos that bands have posted, the guys played their respective parts separately then combined the two videos for a flawless performance of the track.

“This is equally good as the studio version,” one impressed fan wrote on YouTube.

The Lumineers performance was also one for good! The guys played to support and raise money for MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. And last week, they took part in the Live From Quarantine Festival to play some music to raise money for the Frontline Responders Fund.

Schultz also put on a live stream to help raise over $26,000 for the Restaurant Workers Relief Fund.

Fraites has been keeping busy in quarantine and connecting with fans. Last month, he took to Instagram to tell the story of the beloved piano used to record the band's latest album, III, and shared a cover of Nirvana's "Heart Shaped Box.”

While The Lumineers' tour is scheduled to begin in just a few short weeks, the band is most likely going to have to postpone the dates due to the coronavirus outbreak. At press time, the band hasn't made an announcement about the tour.
