Success 'a dream' for British band

Mumford And Sons have declared that their current success is "a bit of a dream come true".

The British folk rock band's album Sigh No More is now double platinum and their next offering, Babel, is one of the year's most anticipated records.

Band member Ted Dwane said: "For us, it's kind of a bit of a dream come true.

"We'd never thought we'd get to travel so extensively, meet our heroes and collaborate with so many people... We're just having a really nice time."

The band - Ted, Marcus Mumford, Country Winston Marshall and Ben Lovett - are teaming up with US singer Emmylou Harris on an episode of CMT Crossroads, a TV show which pairs country music artists with musicians from other genres.

The Grammy-winner revealed she is a huge fan.

"They're making the banjo respectable, which is not an easy feat, and I'm so glad it's finally happening," she joked.

Emmylou had only briefly met lead singer Marcus, who is married to actress Carey Mulligan, before agreeing to do the show based on the waves they created in the music world. They co-ordinated song choices by phone and got together to rehearse for a little more than a day before recording the show earlier this month.

"They're great harmony (singers) and they've got this great driving groove with a minimalist instrumentation," she said. "But they just sound good and the songs have beautiful melodies and I love harmonising on them."
