Mumford & Sons become wedding singers

Written by . Published: August 12 2011

Mumford & Sons are taking time out of their busy schedule to provide the entertainment at a family wedding.

The rockers are currently recording the follow-up to their hit debut Sigh No More, but they've agreed to perform at a reception for keyboardist Ben Lovett's sister.

The band will thrill guests at Lovett's family farm in Devon, England on Saturday (12Aug11).

A source tells Britain's The Sun, "Ben was keen to get the band to play at the ceremony.

"His parents have built a stage next to the swimming pool for the event. It will be their smallest gig in years, just 200 people, and there will be none of the pressure of their live shows.

"The setting is beautiful and it will give them a chance to relax away from the studio."
