Mumford & Sons to Join Bob Dylan for Grammy Performance

Mumford & Sons

Brilliant news: British folk band Mumford & Sons, who are nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy, will team up with rock legend Bob Dylan for a performance at this Sunday’s (February 13) Grammy ceremony. NME reports that the Mumfords “will perform with [Dylan] as well as North Carolina band The Avett Brothers for an as-yet unannounced number, and will also play their song ‘The Cave’”.

Mumford & Sons were on Anglophenia’s list of the Top 10 British Breakout Acts of 2010. They are also up for three BRIT Awards, which will be handed out on February 15.

Here’s their song, “The Cave.”

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
