Imagine hopping a train from Oakland, CA all the way to New Orleans. Imagine on that train are three of your favorite bands: Britain's acclaimed Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, and Tennessee’s Old Crow Medicine Show. Imagine the music playing all night long through the southwestern desert and stopping in towns for surprise shows and you have the BIG EASY EXPRESS. 3 bands. 6 cities. 1 train and thousands of miles of track… the BIG EASY EXPRESS documents a cinematic musical journey, a “tour of dreams” that results in a film that is nothing short of magical.
