I boarded the train in Portland with a guitar and a Ukulele. It was an all night train, 17 hours beginning at 2pm, ending at 8am the next day. After discovering the sight seeing car, where people sit to watch the scenery move by. I noticed the quietness. It was quiet NOT because people weren’t listening to music, but because people were listening to music on headphones.
Being the stealth folky networker that I am, I saw an opportunity for a song circle.
First action, to find out if I could get away with playing guitar and song sharing on the sight seeing train car…..
