Simply The Blues Train
All aboard for a blues concert on an Amtrak train!
On the Friday of Mother's Day weekend, the lounge car of Amtrak's Southwest Chief was turned into a blues club for a few hours between Chicago and Fort Madison.
John Primer and Dan Beaver performed a show to promote the Simply The Blues festival in Fort Madison.
During this half hour documentary you'll hear from the musicians, passengers, and the man who came up with the idea for holding a blues concert on a train. The program also features a lot of music from the Simply The Blues Train concert.
