After bonding over a shared affinity for country, bluegrass and folk music, Marcus Mumford, Country Winston, Ben Lovett and Ted Dwane began collaborating in 2007, with an enthusiasm that helped land them at the forefront of London's underground folk scene.

In the U.S., Mumford and Sons' members toured with the likes of Laura Marling, John Flynn, The Sussex Wit and Noah and the Whale, before recording their debut album, Sigh No More. Listen to an interview and a studio session with World Cafe host David Dye.

This World Cafe performance originally aired on Feb. 9.
