Congratulations! Mumford & Sons to receive Trailblazer Award at UK Americana Awards 2018

Ben Lovett from the band said, “We’re very honoured to be included in this year’s UK Americana Awards. From ‘Folk-Rock’ to ‘Bluegrass’ to ‘Country’ to ‘Folk and Roll’ we’ve never fully felt comfortable with labels that people have put on our music. To us, it’s just the sound that we make, drawing on all sorts of influences from America and elsewhere. Americana encapsulates this patchwork of influence most broadly and to be recognised alongside some of our heroes is truly humbling.”

Stevie Freeman, CEO Americana Music Association UK (AMA-UK), commented, “We are over the moon that Mumford & Sons are accepting this award from us as we’ve always felt they’ve been instrumental in taking UK Americana music world wide. They’ve really opened doors for countless other bands to walk through and have helped bring banjo and acoustic instruments back into the popular domain.”

The UK Americana Awards 2018 will take place at Hackney Empire on Thursday 1st February. 

MARCUS MUMFORD is also set to perform.

Mumford and Sons from SPIN Magazine’s Summer Live Guide, June 2011.

“We must settle for breaking the law — we buy cans of Guinness from a grocery store and sit by the city’s Ha’penny Bridge looking out for the cops.

‘This Guinness is shit. It’s tourist beer,’ moans Dwane, scowling as he sips.

'Well, we are tourists,’ says Marshall.”
