Alternative folk band the Lumineers are set to make their debut performance on ‘SNL’

Last weekend’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” featured a performance from Paul McCartney and the surviving members of Nirvana, and now, the Lumineers are set to appear on the popular sketch comedy show as the musical guest.

The Denver-based alternative folk band is scheduled to make their “Saturday Night Live” debut on Jan. 19, 2013, according to a tweet from the show, alongside host, actress Jennifer Lawrence. Lawrence stars in the Golden Globe-nominated film “Silver Linings Playbook,” which is in theaters now. Expect the group to perform tracks from their 2012 self-titled debut album during their appearance.

The Lumineers’ big, 2012 breakout single is the neo-folk ditty “Ho Hey,” and the track is currently No. 4 on Nielsen’s BDS Alternative Radio chart. The band recently released a follow-up single, “Stubborn Love,” which is just now entering the chart.
