'Big Easy Express' doc with Mumford & Sons, Old Old Crow Medicine Show and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros by Emmett Malloy

David Knight - 23rd Mar 2012

Big Easy Express, Emmett Malloy's documentary follows a trio of bands - Mumford & Sons, Old Crow Medicine Show and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros - on their tour across America via an unusual mode of transport: a historic train, that travels from San Francisco to New Orleans - the Big Easy Express.

<em>Big Easy Express</em>, Emmett Malloy's documentary follows a trio of bands - Mumford &amp; Sons, Old Crow Medicine Show and Edward Sharpe &amp; The Magnetic Zeros - on their tour across America via an unusual mode of transport: a historic train, that travels from San Francisco to New Orleans - the Big Easy Express. The bands climbed aboard amid the railyards of Oakland in April 2011, and set off on a tour of six cities - and Emmett Malloy's film documents the bands' railway adventures; the high canyons, joyous crowds, blasted skies, late-night laughter, endless music - and a train bound for glory. <em>Big Easy Express</em> was rapturously received on its world premiere, when it closed the SXSW Festival in Austin last Saturday, on March 17th - at least partly because the bands' performance in Austin, where the Mumfords play with the local marching band, is featured in the movie.
