i posted a link on the music on buses thread
about musical trains. www.flyingunderradar.com
is the site where you can find out more about
Charlie Hunter and the train trips he runs.

one of the of these trips is cowboy
music and poetry and some of the trains go
into copper canyon in mexico, or steam trains
that go accross the rocky mountains...

the cowboy train often goes across VIA Rail
in canada and on one of those trips i met
Peter O'Brien from U.K.

he has just put out an album here:

My CD, recorded with Tony Poole, is called
JUNKED CARS & BEAT UP GUITARS.
You can get all the information,
including order details, lyrics, comments
(including a wonderful letter of praise from Ian Tyson)
and so forth by going to
www.starryeyedandlaughing.com

Sounds wonderful.

Does any-one remember Rip Rippingale's Folk Train (in the UK)?

Best wishes,

Peter

There are Folk Trains from both Manchester and Sheffield into the Peak District. The band plays on the train - the audience is a mixture of folkies who've come for the music and bemused commuters. Everyone then decamps to a pub for a few more songs, then rushes back to the station to catch the train back, with more music. The organisers have got the timings down to the second.

It's a slightly weird gig, but great fun.
