Tucked between Canada’s western waves of grain sits Regina, Saskatchewan, whose CN terminal emits a strong current connecting agricultural customers across the Prairies to worldwide markets. This CN terminal serves a critical role in the livelihood of western farmers, moving grain from the Prairies to export markets, thus assuring abundance for current and future harvests.
Inspired by an installment of works entitled, American Dreams, Thomas Hellman spins tales, stories and anecdotes of CN in a soundscape of words, harmonizing history with blues, folk, and gospel tunes. Accompanied by multi-instrumentalist composer's Erik West and Olaf Gundel, the trio will be traveling along The Moving Celebration, giving us not one, but two chances to tune in every day they perform.
