The Dominion Atlantic Railway: Pictures, Stories and Songs

A pre-festival fundraiser in support of Deep Roots Music Cooperative - join Gary Ness & the Mud Creek Boys for an evening aboard the Dominion Atlantic Railway! Revisit a bygone era through pictures and tales that cover more than a century of DAR history, with accompanying railroadin' songs that recall the nostalgia and romance of the heyday of the iron horse.

Gary is a local train historian and a masterful storyteller with a wealth of tales about trains here in the Annapolis Valley. He’ll show projections from his extensive photographic collections, which are featured in his two published volumes of Canadian Pacific's Dominion Atlantic Railway.

The Mud Creek boys are an acoustic trio who play a mix of old time country, bluegrass, blues and swing - those "old songs that everybody remembers but nobody plays anymore". Members are J. P. Huang - guitar and mandolin, Ian Spooner - banjo and guitar, and Peter Williams - banjo, bass and guitar.

Deep Roots is thrilled that Gary, J.P., Ian and Peter are willing to do the DAR Show to help with our fund-raising. The show was performed once before, in November 2011, and the packed house obviously loved it.

After the show, you are invited to take a closer look at fascinating train paraphernalia, chat with Gary and the Mud Creek Boys, enjoy wine and cheese (included in ticket price), and maybe even share your own memories and stories of the train.

$20.
