Folk is anything but a fad. Whereas Kings of Leon only hit one specific group of people Folk goes back to Neil Young and even before that. It has been rising for years and Mumford and Sons has just been one of the bands to receive a lot of notoriety for what they have done. Even when they are not in the top 10 album sells or songs Folk music will not go anywhere with the fans it already has.

This current rise in the popularity of folk is a fad.

Not much of a rise in popularity as much as something people are into at the moment. Mumford and Sons is the only top 40 folksy band out there, the rest are overlooked. Not a great recipe for prolonged popularity, especially considering Mumford aren't exactly a top notch act.

Prolonged radio popularity is a good point. The Lumineers are on their way I think also. However I don't think folk will ever really catch on with the radio crowd but is very prevalent in the indie scene. More so because I don't think it would be classified, subclassified or whatever you might call it in with indie. So the rise of folk bands just under mainstream is a pretty good step.
