Tuesday 16, April 2013

What are you doing, oh, say… Saturday 6th July? Well, sure hope you’re free.

Because by that time Marcus, Ben, Ted and Winston will be back on home turf in London (post-Calgary-Telluride Summer Stampede) and not only that but it will of course also officially be Summer Time. And well you know how they like to celebrate these things with friends.

By friends we mean you and these friends from the road too, presented by Gentlemen of the Road…

Tickets will then go on general sale on Friday 19th April at 9am www.livenation.co.uk.

It’s going to be a whole lot of fun. Hope to see you there.

Much love,

When London folk revivalists Mumford & Sons announced their two-night stand at Susquehanna Bank Center shortly after their sophomore LP Babel dropped in the fall, both shows sold out in seconds. For those who didn’t get tickets, WXPN is broadcasting the band’s set on Sunday night the 17th in its entirety. The night begins at 8 p.m. EST [click here to convert to your own time zone] with host Mike Vasilikos live from the Susquehanna Bank Center while Haim and Ben Howard warm up the crowd. When Mumford goes on, we turn the airwaves over to the stage as the band works through songs from Babel and its 2009 debut Sigh No More. Tune in on the radio at 88.5 FM in Philadelphia or online at XPN.org. Below, check out a video of the band performing “I Will Wait” sold-out show at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn – clearly, the local crowd is in for a high energy mass-singalong whether it’s on-air on in the flesh.

Daytrotter Presents...The Stopover Sessions ]

From the Mumford & Sons Official Website:
Friday 5, October 2012 

The location is Dixon, Illinois and the date is August 2012. Mumford & Sons are in town for a Stopover show…

The buzz of the crowds and the stands and the bands they’ve asked to play fizzes around them. The weather is hot and they seek a little refuge indoors, finding an empty high school auditorium.Daytrotter are in the premises, recording equipment in tow.

It being the only multi-day Stopover date Marcus, Ben, Ted and Winston find themselves in a rare position of circumstance; a quiet space, all their instruments plus a whole load of talented musician folk on hand and with a little time to spare. So Daytrotter hit record and thus, here we have today… The Stopover Sessions.

They consist of a mixture of originals, covers (Bruce SpringsteenBob Dylan) and interpretations of traditional folk songs and include recordings by not only by Mumford & Sons but also contributions from HAIM, Abigail Washburn, Apache Relay, Dawes, Gogol Bordello, The Very Best and Nathaniel Rateliff., laid down either in the auditorium or the lounge of the band’s tour bus.

Daytrotter members can now download all of these sessions over here. If you’re not a member it’s still possible to stream the tracks by signing up for a free trial.

The Stopover Sessions come in a number of parts; Mumford & Sons and Friends, Stopover Sessions Part 2 and Stopover Sessions Part 3, Gogol Bordello’s Stopover Session and The Very Best’s Stopover Session.

Enjoy,
