Event Description

Roots on the Rails, North America's Moving Music Festival, combines long-distance train travel with on-board live performance by some of the top names in contemporary acoustic music. These Vancouver shows are the kickoff and wrap-up concerts of the 2005 trips across Canada. The Cowboy Train departs Vancouver for Toronto on March 20, and the Songwriter Train leaves Toronto on March 26, arriving in Vancouver on the morning of the 29th. Each journey is limited to seventy customers. For full details on the trips, visit www.rootsontherails.com.

The Wrap-up concert for Roots on the Rails return trip (the Songwriter Train) will feature three gritty, intellegent and often challenging songwriters. Former Vancouver resident, Tom Russell has a long history of songwriting. His songs have been performed by Johnny Cash, Guy Clark and Sylvia Tyson to name a few and his gift for storytelling has had him compared to Bob Dylan, author John Steinbach and poet Walt Whitman.

Mary Gauthier is one of the most challenging artists to rise up from the underground in a long time. Her path has wound through devastation and despair. She has beaten back demons, lived off the streets, sunk to the bottom of life, turned 18 behind bars, emerged from darkness, and to completely confuse things won notice as a respected restaurateur — all before writing her first song.

Gretchen Peters has been hailed by many as one of Nashville’s best contemporary songwriters. Her intelligent and introspective songs have been covered by pop, country, blues and folk artists all over the world.
