The band’s bassist Ted Dwayne was rushed to the hospital on Monday, where he is being treated for a blood clot on the surface of his brian, according to a letter on the Mumford & Sons website. As of now, the band is is still scheduled to play Telluride Bluegrass Festival on June 20.

The Mumfords penned a letter on their website that you can read below:

To our fans -

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.

Sadly we have to postpone three upcoming headline shows planned for this week in Dallas on Tuesday 6/11, Woodlands on Wednesday 6/12, and New Orleans on Thursday 6/13. All dates will be rescheduled and will be announced as soon as we can; all tickets for this week’s events will be honoured at their rescheduled dates. We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour.

We’re all wishing Ted a speedy recovery.
Much love,
Mumford & Sons
