Last month, Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, and Old Crow Medicine Show channeled their old-weird-America roots by touring the South on an old train. Dubbed the Railroad Revival Tour, it featured the bands hitting six cities aboard a few old Amtrak cars. Joe Biden would approve.

The tour was inspired by Woody Guthrie’s wanderings, so it’s fitting that the bands jammed on a Guthrie tune – and a train-themed one at that. This new footage from VH1 catches the crew at an Austin stop, rollicking through “This Train Is Bound for Glory.” As Old Crow Medicine Show’s Ketch Secor notes right off the bat, there’s a whole lot of New Orleans in this horn-fueled rave. Watch the fun below.
