By Elizabeth Thabault |

St. Augustine residents and fans across the country were shocked and excited to hear that popular English folk band Mumford and Sons added St. Augustine to their 2013 tour. Mumford and Sons are scheduled to play in a two-day music festival coming up Sept. 13-14 on Francis Field in downtown St. Augustine. This will be the closing concert of their summer “Gentlemen of the Road Stopover” tour.
