Bagpipes & grand piano’s: Welcome to Vancouver’s Rocky Mountaineer.

“Working on the railroad” at the Rocky Mountaineer station in Vancouver.

For the past four years during the summer months, I have been fortunate to play pipes for the Rocky Mountaineer Rail Company. The tourist passenger train with the amazing views takes travellers through the spectacular Rocky Mountains to Banff and Jasper, Calgary and Whistler. And this year, the company has added an additional train, the Coastal Passage, from Seattle to Vancouver.

As a piper, it’s a great opportunity to share music with an enthusiastic group of travellers, supported by an amazing crew of people at Rocky Mountaineer.  Click on the link below to see what life is like behind the scenes at Rocky Mountaineer as we prepare for an early morning train departure.  Enjoy.
