Bear’s Den


“Taking a cue from earnest, pastoral folk-rockers like Mumford & Sons and the Avett Brothers, London alt-country/indie folk trio Bear’s Den formed around the talents of Joey Haynes, Andrew Davie and Kev Jones. Bear’s Den honed their chops on tours with contemporaries like Of Monsters and Men, the Smoke Fairies, and Matt Corby before securing the opening slot for the Mumford Boys’ 2012 performance at London’s massive O2 Arena.”  (Source: iTunes)
