Mumford & Sons surprised fans by showing up at the Glastonbury Festival on Saturday. While the band said on Facebook that the Gentlemen Of The Road stage was not a Mumford & Sons performance the band – sans banjo player Winston Marshall – came out and performed with Haim.
The group of musicians played ‘Honey and I’, ‘Forever’, and they did covers of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Oh Well’ and The Rolling Stones’ ‘Dead Flowers’. “How was that with a bit of Mumford & Sons for you,” Este Haim said before they all started another Rolling Stones cover of ‘Honky Tonk Women’.
Before that the three members joined Michael Kiwanuka for the last song in his set in Avalon Café. They also covered Neil Young’s ‘Dance Dance Dance’ with Kiwanuka and other members of Bear’s Den and The Staves.
This marks their first performance since announcing their hiatus last year. Fingers crossed that this means it's over!
