Big Easy Express Trailer 2012: 3 bands, 6 cities, 1 train, and thousands of miles of track… the BIG EASY EXPRESS documents a cinematic musical journey. Directed by renowned filmmaker Emmett Malloy (OUT COLD; THE WHITE STRIPES UNDER GREAT WHITE NORTHERN LIGHTS) and starring some of the finest acts in music today, this incredible new film captures nothing less than history in the making. In April of 2011, indie folk heroes Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Tennessee’s Old Crow Medicine Show, and Britain’s acclaimed Mumford & Sons climbed aboard a beautiful antique train in California, setting out for New Orleans, Louisiana on a “tour of dreams.” 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.
