VIA Rail Canada and Green Couch Productions will host a musical train journey this June, 2012. The project, called “Tracks on Tracks” will feature Canadian musicians performing on the Canadian train, and various station platforms, as they travel from Vancouver to Toronto to perform at the NXNE Festival.
“The inspiration for this project came from our desire to combine Canadian landscape with musical inspiration and the train was a natural choice for us in this project”, said Michelle Alan, Creative Producer for Green Couch Productions.
“VIA Rail is pleased to be involved with this project to assist Canada’s up and coming musicians and to expand our social networking opportunities with a younger audience who are Canada’s future rail riders”, says Pierre Santoni, Sr Director of Domestic & International Sales.
CBC Radio 3 is involved with Tracks on Tracks as the media host. Renowned presenter Grant Lawrence will travel with the Tracks on Tracks train to interview the musicians and to provide commentary about the train journey.
