Railroad Revival Tour

7:29 pm by

Announced earlier today, the Railroad Revival Tour is a one of a kind collaborative tour featuring the talents of Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and Old Crow Medicine Show. The three bands will each take their unique blends of folk music and hop on a vintage train for a week of touring, stopping in six different outdoor locales along the way. While aboard said train, they will eat, sleep, play music, record and collaborate the entire week, eventually putting it all together for what is assured to be one kick ass documentary. Check out dates and read more about the Railroad Revival Tour after the jump.
