Three of Americana and Rock’s leading lights will be the subject of Big Easy Express, presented by the Americana Music Association during the 2012 Nashville Film Festival, scheduled for April 19-26. The screening takes place at 7:30 pm on closing night, April 26, at Regal Green Hills Cinema.
Big Easy Express, directed by Emmett Malloy, follows L.A.’s Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Nashville’s Old Crow Medicine Show, and London’s Mumford & Sons as they journey thousands of miles by train through six cities. The trip begins in Oakland, ending in New Orleans, stopping along the way for sold-out shows in San Pedro, California and Marfa, Texas and documents the bands’ adventures along the way.
Tickets for the screening go on sale to NaFF members April 9, laminate holders April 10 and the general public on April 11. Check out the official trailer here.
