Big Easy Express (Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros): Music News
Ever wondered what Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and Old Crow Medicine Show get up to when they hang out together whilst travelling the land?
Well a new film from renowned filmmaker Emmett Malloy (The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights) Big Easy Express captures 3 bands visiting 6 cities on 1 train covering thousands of miles of track.
Indie folk heroes Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Tennessee’s Old Crow Medicine Show, and Britain’s acclaimed Mumford & Sons, climbed aboard a beautiful vintage train in California, setting out for New Orleans, Louisiana on a “tour of dreams.”
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.
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, Emmett Molloy documents these incredible musicians as they ride the rails and wow the crowds, from Oakland… to New Orleans.
Big Easy Express is out in Australia on DVD and Blu-Ray on the 27th of July 2012 through Rocket Distribution.
