Ho, Hey love these iTunes.

Byline: STEVE MYALL

ITUNES FESTIVAL: THE LUMINEERS Roundhouse, Camden, London "BIT like Mumford and Sons?" said my plus one when I invited him to The Lumineers at iTunes Festival.

Well, kind of. But while the British folk band have a string of hits, their Colorado counterparts really only have Ho Hey as a crowd-pleaser.

Still, a beautifully intimate set followed in front of a delighted Roundhouse crowd.

The soaring, sometimes mournful, vocals of Wesley Schultz were especially captivating during an unplugged first verse of their most well-known number and a brisk rendition of Bob Dylan's Subterranean Homesick Blues.

With just one self-titled album, fans were given an almost complete run-through and at one stage the band relocated into the crowd for two unreleased tracks.

A three-song encore ended the night and capped off an elegant and intimate performance.
