It’s been kind of a banner year for Marcus Mumford and the band Mumford and Sons. They’ve been winning awards, participating in a well-regarded concert tour, and they’ve got a headlining set at Bonnaroo coming up. However, it’s not been a perfect year in regard to health. Mumford and Sons bass player Ted Dwane has been hospitalized due to a blood clot in his brain.
Wrote the Sons on their website: “Our friend and bandmate Ted has been feeling unwell for a few days, and yesterday he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment. The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation. Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery.”
Fortunately the band will only be missing three shows: Dallas on Tuesday 6/11, Woodlands on Wednesday 6/12, and New Orleans on Thursday 6/13. All other shows will be honored and Dwane is expected to make a full recovery. Blood clots can be very nasty, but there are a lot more treatment options these days and Dwane’s clot is one that is fairly easy to treat.
