Today is the big day! In just a few hours 10 bands and a great group of music fans, including our very own Grant Lawrence, will travel across Canada by train from Vancouver to Toronto’s NXNE music festival!
Seeing as we all can’t be on the VIA Rail train, Green Couch Sessions and Radio 3 will be doing our very best to keep you updated on the Tracks on Tracks adventures.
If you’re lucky enough to live close to one of the train’s stops, be sure to check out some performances. Hey, look! It’s a handy schedule:
Tracks on Tracks Schedule (all times local)
June 8th 8:30pm - Departure from Vancouver
June 9th 4:00pm - Jasper Musical Blitz - Several acoustic performances in locations around town
June 10th 1:30pm - Melville Station Platform Show
June 10th 8:30pm -Winnipeg Tracks on Tracks Collaboration Concert at the Forks

Green Couch Sessions, Grant Lawrence, Tim “MusicSoop” Aarons, Lee “Mcfflyer” Hower and Rebecca “rebbeyg” Gladney will join me in the studio today, and we’ll also learn a bit more about one of the band’s playing aboard, Shred Kelly.
