All aboard! Mumford and Sons and more team up for the Railroad Revival Tour

Beginning at the end of next month, indie darlings (and Grammy nominees) Mumford & Sons will join forces with Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and the Old Crow Medicine Show for a short tour — on vintage rail cars. Their venues? Odd (but appropriate) places like Chandler, Arizona’s Railroad Museum. It’s a lot like the 1970 Festival Express, the touring collaboration, via train across Canada, between the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. Fans can expect onstage collaborations, rustic story time from the bands, and probably even some homemade instruments they pick up along the way.
