I loved this idea when I heard of it last year in it’s inaugural voyage featuring Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Old Crow Medicine Show -documented on the documentary “Big Easy Express.” Alas I missed it when it rolled into Oakland.
Not this year my friends! The Railroad Revival Tour is the coolest thing this side of The Cayamo Cruise. The train will route through the south to west through Texas of the United States on Oct. 20-Oct. 28, is reminiscent of the old-style medicine shows. This year’s bill is a beaut, Willie Nelson, Jamey Johnson, Band of Horses and MCd by actor and actor-musician John C. Reilly.
