Music On The Wine Trains All Year


This summer I have had the great pleasure of playing and singing for the passengers on the Rio Grande Scenic Railway Wine Train Colorado excursions. There’s been a great response, so RGSR has extended these Wine Trains, and my contract, to the end of the year!

To find out everything you need to know and to book tickets, please visit

Wine Trains depart from Alamosa, CO, and turn around at Fort Garland for a luxurious two-hour excursion across the San Luis Valley, with fine views of the Great Sand Dunes, the San Luis Hills, and Mount Blanca.

Wine Trains are scheduled at 6:00 pm on Friday and Saturday evenings, affording colorful Colorado sunsets. A Saturday Afternoon Wine Train, departing at 12:30, has also been added.

This is the actual club car from the fabled “City of New Orleans,” Illinois Central Line, named “Mardi Gras.”

Here are pics and vids from Saturday's Junior Brown show in a two minute compilation clip. #JuniorBrown

My Pledge of Allegiance


As Tom and I have become more comfortable in our new home in southern Colorado, I have come to admire Coloradans’ good nature and practical respect for personal liberty.  One of our current state senators, Michael Bennet, has raised his voice for justice and fairness towards all in our country, including families who are immigrants.  Inclusiveness is an American ideal, along with liberty and justice for all, that is contained in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag that so many of us learned as students and repeated daily.

It’s to Sen. Michael Bennet and other leaders who are speaking up for the civil rights of ordinary people that I dedicate this song.
