Bob Dylan is set to appear at the Grammys this Sunday (Feb. 13), where he will perform with Mumford & Sons and the Avett Brothers. Yes, the inexplicable rise of Mumford & Sons just got a little weirder, although Dylan’s erratic presence on stage may put a dent in their ultra sanitized take on folk and country music.
“I don’t think either of these bands would be on a stage if it wasn’t for the music of Bob Dylan,” said producer Ken Ehrlich in an interview with the New York Times. “I think for the harmonies alone it should be something special. You don’t know what you’ve got, what the blend is, until you see it, but I think it could be fantastic.”
Apparently Dylan will perform a three-song set, although what that will include has not been announced just yet. Expect generous applause to ring out around the world if he ends the set by impaling Marcus Mumford’s head on a spike after ripping out his vocal chords. [via Consequence of Sound]
