It’s co-host special on this week’s Communion Presents as Maz is joined by Marcus Mumford.
While Mumford and Sons are off the road for a bit, Marcus has been twiddling his thumbs. He’s picked the playlist and chats with Maz about current and future plans.

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros are on tour in Dublin!
And what a show! We were treated to an amazing night at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin, venue of choice for Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros.
It seems so long since we have been to a gig, can we possibly still be ‘sisters of the road’ if we haven’t actually been on the road? Definitely the road less travelled of late!
Ever since the Gentlemen of the Road announced their ‘hiatus’, there has been very little opportunity to go giggin, so it was with great excitement this weekend that we headed off down to Dublin’s fair city to do the SOTR proud and queue up in the rain to get our VIP armbands, given only to the first 150 to enter the building!
We were not prepared for the impromptu hour and a half of tension before the band were due on because there was a power cut that took out half the lights in Dublin, our half!! Thankfully electric cables were restored just in time for the performance! Phew!!!
The band came on at about 9.45pm.
No set list, Alex just asked the audience what they wanted to hear and then they played it!! Perfect!! Great interaction with the audience - both Alex and Jade came down into the audience and asked people if they wanted to sing verses of songs, two people did!! The atmosphere was just amazing!! Show ended about 11.45 after the band played ‘Home’ -
no encore as the theatre was closing and we were being thrown out!
All over too soon!
Happy Hiatus Sisters, but let’s hope it is soon at an end !!
