Mumford & Sons, an indie folk band from London, chased away the winter chills as they took to the ABC stage in Glasgow for a sell out gig. The atmosphere was fanastic and the crowd cheered as they played with soaring keys, pumping banjo, and pristine vocal harmonies.

Their lead singer Marcus has dark good looks and a glint in his eye and a voice that aches and moves with energetic passions. The band consists of Marcus Mumford (guitar, drums, mandolin), Country Winston ( banjo, dobro), Ben Lovett (keyboards, organ), Ted Dwane (double bass).

Mumford and Lovett met while attending King's College School alongside Noah and the Whale bassist Matt Owens, whilst Marshall attended St Paul's School along with Charlie Fink, lead singer of Noah and the Whale. The band are signed to Island Records and their debut album, 'Sigh No More', was released in the UK in October 2009, and in February 2010 in the US. The band has also achieved success in Australia, and also played live on CBS Late Show with David Letterman.

They were well supported by Fanfarlo, an interesting young indie pop band from London.
