Canadian Pacific’s Holiday Train is set to once again bring joy to local communities this holiday season! Starting out in Montreal on Nov. 25th and 27th, two trains will begin a festive journey throughout the U.S and Canada, to raise funds and collect food donations for those in needs.
Last week, the organization announced that Nova Scotia-bred, Toronto-based band The Trews will be joining the second leg of the tour starting in Chicago, and travelling through Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Carolina, before reaching their final destination in Saskatchewan on December 16th. The band just released their latest full-length album, “Civilianaires”, which you can listen to here.
Guitarist John-Angus MacDonald says:
“We are excited to be part of the CP Holiday Train this year which takes us through the US Midwest. This will be our first time touring by train, which is something we’ve always wanted to do, and to do so while being able to raise some money and put food on local shelves at this most important time of year makes it all the more special. We can’t wait!”
Running since 1999, the CP Holiday Train program has raised more than C$14.5 million, and gathered 4.3 million pounds of foods for communities along CP’s routes in Canada and the US.

Hi there! My name is Marie, I am French born and raised, now living in Montreal. I work in Marketing by day, and I’m an avid concert-goer by night. I have always had a passion for photography, and realized that this mixes quite well with my love for live music (the absolute best way to experience music, if you ask me).
