Tom Russell has been called America's greatest living songwriter... a worthy heir to Johnny Cash. In the spring of 2004, Russell rounded up a group of world-class musicians (Andrew Hardin, Hot Club of Cowtown, Fats Kaplin & Kristi Rose) for a rolling folk festival that stretched across the vast landscapes of Canada. Starting with a rousing concert in Vancouver (where Russell's musical career began) performers and fans boarded the last great vintage streamline train still operating in North America and shared a one-of-a-kind roots music experience. Concert and documentary footage take you inside this cutting-edge trip across North America and into the heart of Russell's music. All the hits are included, as well as previews of new songs. Get on board.
