Can you be too posh to make pop music?

The band Mumford & Sons have said that they are picked on in the UK for being "posh", because they went to public school.

But Jon McClure, lead singer of Sheffield indie band Reverend and the Makers, says that private school networks are making it difficult for working class musicians to break into the industry.

He told BBC Radio 5 live's Phil Williams, "The Vaccines, Laura Marling and Mumford and Sons all knew each other at school. They're all from that network... that's not open to us."
