Eden Sessions 2010: Doves & Mumford and Sons
Doves are the 3rd act to have been announced to play the 2010 Eden Sessions

It has been announced that Doves and Mumford & Sons will play the 3rd of the Eden Sessions 2010.

Doves and Mumford & Sons will take to the stage on Friday July 2.

This session marks a return for Indie legends Doves, who played at the home of the world-famous Biomes in 2002.

Folk rock's newest stars Mumford & Sons - emerged from the prolific West London folk scene and have since wowed audiences with their top ten debut Sigh No More.

The Manchester band have released four studio albums since 2000 - Lost Souls, chart-toppers The Last Broadcast and Some Cities and last year's Kingdom of Rust.

Single releases have included There Goes the Fear, Black and White Town and Snowden. This April sees the release of The Places Between: The Best of Doves.

Doves were nominated in the British Band category at this year's BRIT Awards and had their first two albums shortlisted for the Mercury Prize.

Mumford & Sons emerged from the prolific West London folk scene and wowed audiences with their top ten debut Sigh No More, released late last year.

Their sound blends the delicacy and lyrical deftness of the finest acoustic acts mixed with the sense of gravity more readily associated with rock bands.

The album, which spawned the singles Little Lion Man, Winter Winds and The Cave, garnered significant attention from radio DJs and critics, bolstering the reputation Mumford & Sons had won through their extensive touring.

Tjarko Wieringa, Eden Sessions Creative Director, said: "We're really excited to welcome Doves back to Eden after playing such a brilliant gig here in 2002. Mumford & Sons are one of the best new acts around and the combination of the two promises another legendary Session."
