Big Easy Express

by Crystal Meers


All aboard Big Easy Express, director Emmett Malloy's award-winning documentary that follows the bands Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Old Crow Medicine Show during the Railroad Revival Tour in April 2011.

Here, Malloy shares snapshots taken during the eight-day voyage, which took them from Oakland to New Orleans aboard a custom train made of a cobbled-together collection of vintage train cars. He captures the journey, the sold-out shows, and the great American Southwest along the way.
