Big Easy Express:
3 bands, 6 cities, 1 train and, thousands of miles of track. This documentary captures a musical journey. Harkening back to the days of jubilant railroad revivals, three bands set out in April 2011 to tour America by train. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Old Crow Medicine Show and, Mumford & Sons climbed aboard amid the rail yards of Oakland and set out for New Orleans on a “Tour Of Dreams.” The bands experienced the high canyons, joyous crowds, blasted skies, late-night laughter, endless music and, a train that was bound for glory.
Can you imagine being part of that entire train ride?
