Three bands set out on a musical adventure through America by vintage train. Journeying through six cities and covering thousands of miles, L.A.’s Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Nashville boys Old Crow Medicine Show and Londoners Mumford & Sons climb on board in Oakland and embark upon an adventure that will lead them to the heart of New Orleans. Making pit stops along the way to play sold out shows, this is a journey of late-night musical discovery, enrapturing golden landscapes and adoring crowds. From renowned music documentarian Emmett Malloy, this rock ‘n’ roll “tour of dreams” allows us to ride the rails with a group of musicians as they collaborate and celebrate their love of playing music on one very memorable trip.
