Winston Marshall, Mumford and Sons banjo player, has kept fans up to date regarding the condition of the group's bassist Ted Dwane. Marshall confirmed via Twitter on June 12, 2013 that Dwane is "recovering nicely" one day following the emergency brain surgery Dwane underwent for treatment of a blood clot.
Marshall Tweeted: "Ted is recovering nicely from surgery. He's a brave little boy. Thanks for all your support. We are very grateful." As is much else of the world. The Grammy award winning group was forced to altogether cancel three upcoming concerts scheduled for the same week Dwane fell ill. An official statement released by the band's website read: "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."
So far shows in Dallas, Woodlands, and New Orleans were canceled with additional make up shows to be added to the tour expected to resume on Saturday when the band and hundreds of other performers gather at Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tennessee beginning June 13, 2013.
