Musical Journey

Three bands, six cities and one train, that's the magic behind "The Big Easy Express."  LA natives Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, Nashville group Old Crow Medicine Show and London lads Mumford and Sons are on board a train from Oakland to New Orleans, some might call it a "tour of dreams."  Stopping in six cities along the railroad to preform for fans from both sides of the track.  The band members are the only ones on board the train jamming the entire trip one band member even says "Its like we left all our baggage behind and just brought our instruments."

Back into the magic...

"All those little things make us kindred spirits..."

"We are the only one's on this train, we got it all"

"We have this beam of light shooting down on this train, traveling across the country"

On March 17th in Austin, TX at the SXSW, the world premiere of Big Easy Express, followed by a Q&A, as well as a special acoustic set.  I would do anything to be there.  Can't wait to see this wonderful documentary.

"It was a great trip to New Orleans y'all twenty-eight hundred miles, week and a half and the TIME OF OUR LIFE!"
