Multi-platinum Grammy Award-winners Mumford & Sons will return to the Southland this Sunday for a Gentlemen of the Road festival event, a special stop on their highly-anticipated Telluride to Calgary Summer Stampede tour. Michael Kiwanuka, Eels and Mystery Jets will join them as special guests. Plus, KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic host and musical director Jason Bentley will spin a post-show DJ set to cap off the day’s festivities.
