Tonight’s guest host is Adam Stockdale, who not only tours with Mumford & Sons as a guitar technician and musician, but is also a terrific artist himself. He goes by the name Albatross, and will play some of his new tunes during tonight’s show!

Here’s what Deering Banjos had to say about their recent visit with Mumford & Sons’ Winston Marshall:
“We had a fantastic time at Deering recently with friends Winston Marshall of Mumford & Sons and Adam and Adam of their crew learning all about how banjos are made and maintained. They even got to watch a re-fret get done. Good times and great folks they are!”

Mumfordandsons.com Blog Update: Official Huddersfield Aftershow Events Announced - Word From The Band ]

From the Mumford & Sons Official Website:

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

So the night does not end in Greenhead Park. Think of the exodus from the park more as half time, as the Stopover gears up for the second half with a few uniquely different and great events in the centre of Huddersfield. We will be running between all of the events, but as is often the case, we’ll probably all end up at The House Party at The Other Rooms… 

THE OTHER ROOMS HOUSE PARTY
We all love a House Party, right? It so happened the idea came to us when we arrived at The Other Rooms, which was in the middle of a refurbishment a couple of weeks ago. The owner has kindly allowed us make The Other Rooms after-party HQ as it were. Nick Etwell, who you may recognise from playing Trumpet with Mumford & Sons over the past couple of years, has brought up his exceptional band The Filthy Six from London to play their boogaloo/funk/soul/musicyoucannotstandstillto concoction in the first room. Downstairs, amongst the stone arches and caves and coves, people can get away from the craziness for a moment, whilst the fantastic Huddersfield natives “The Rag Tags” and M&S touring veteran “Albatross”, will be serenading and rocking out in the back room. It’s hopefully going to cater for every flight of fancy, apart from the hardcore at Tokyo’s and happily amused at Club 122. 

Get tickets in advance HERE or on the door.

Venue: The Other Rooms, 
Queensgate, Huddersfield, HD1 2RD
Doors: Midnight
Age Restrictions: 18+ 
Price: £6

COMEDY AT CLUB 122
For those who have had their fair share of music throughout the day, and would something a bit different, it is with great pleasure that we have incorporated a Comedy show, with a couple of our favourite emerging comedians travelling to Huddersfield for the event. Kicking off at Midnight at Dominic Woodward, prepare to have your sides split open, or fall off your proverbial chair as the fantastically sharp Alfie Brown dissects popular culture, and the award winning Piff The Magic Dragon masterfully combines comedy and magic.

Get tickets in advance HERE or on the door.

Venue: Bar 122, 120 New Street, Huddersfield, HD1 2UD
Doors: 11.30pm
Age Restrictions: 18+
Price: £5

TOKYOS NIGHTCLUB - DJ set on terrace
Tokyo’s is where the rave is at. Well, more of an indie rave, but it’s going to be loud, and there’ll be dancing, and drinking, and at some point during the night Ben will be dropping in to spin some of his favourite tunes from the “golden year of naughties indie” - 2006 (The Strokes, The Killers, Arctic Monkeys etc). Tokyo’s has multiple rooms, and bars, spread across three floors, the usual night will be going on, but look out for us we’ll be there somewhere.. at some point.

M, T, W & B x

Ps. the Stopover gates open at 3pm and the event is due to finish at 11pm.

I don't understand why you keep including Ross Holmes as though he's a member of the band, he's not!

- Asked by Anonymous

Should I not include photos of Captain Nick and the Hornblowers and Adam Stockdale and credit them when they play with the band, either?  You realize that both Sigh No More and the forthcoming album would be completely different without the talents and contributions of those musicians, right?  I’m fairly certain that Ben, Marcus, Winston, and Ted would agree that anyone who plays with them is part of their band.  If you check this source and this interview, it’s quite clear that those boys are all about people and fostering community through their music, not exclusivity.

With that said, yes, Ross Holmes is a vital part of Mumford & Sons.  If he wasn’t, forgive me, but this song (and many others) would be lacking something seriously special.
