3 bands, 6 cities, 1 train, and thousands of miles of trackâ€¦the Big Easy Express documents a cinematic musical journey. Directed by renowned filmmaker Emmett Malloy, this incredible new film captures nothing less than history in the making.
Indie folk heroes Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Tennesseeâ€™s Old Crow Medicine Show, and Britainâ€™s acclaimed Mumford & Sons, climbed aboard a beautiful vintage train in California, setting out for New Orleans, Louisiana on a â€œtour of dreamsâ€. The resulting film from this journey is nothing short of magical.
Part road movie and part concert film, Big Easy Express bears witness to the birth of a new musical era. With poignancy and beauty, Malloy documents these incredible musicians as they ride the rails and wow the crowds, from Oakland to New Orleans.
So climb on board for a vibrant, raucous railway adventure. Filled with joyous crowds, late night laughter, endless music and a train that was bound for glory.
