Mumford & Sons to headline Guthrie festival
Mumford & Sons, the London-based folk rock band whose latest album, 2012′s “Babel,” sold over 600,000 copies in its first week, will bring its two-day “Gentlemen of the Road” festival to Guthrie on Sept. 6-7.
Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. Friday for the event, which will take place at Cottonwood Flats near downtown Guthrie and will also feature Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Alabama Shakes, Willy Mason, The Vaccines and Those Darlins, with more performers to be announced. Mumford & Sons will headline and close the concert on Sept. 7.
The Guthrie stop for “Gentlemen of the Road” is one of only five scheduled performances including one stop each in England and Canada and domestic dates in Troy, Ohio and St. Augustine, Fla. Jamie Fitzgerald, director of marketing for DCF Concerts, the promoter of the event, said her company has worked for over three months to bring “Gentlemen of the Road” to Oklahoma. In each stopover, Mumford & Sons partners with the host city to bring in local vendors and food to celebrate the individual character of each town.
