Slow Train Home
Park Alleys
730 Osborne St, Winnipeg, MB, Canada


Slow Train Home is an original alt-country music project imagined by singer-songwriter Tod Hughes who hails from Winnipeg, Calgary (27 years), and Winnipeg again. The name is inspired by the long journey home to the heart of the Canadian prairies over way more years than was ever planned. Also, it is inspired by the music of the road of life and the journey through time as much as the distance travelled.

Hughes is joined on the Train by legendary Winnipeg producer, engineer, musician, and songwriter Chris Brett who has been part of some of the biggest bands and albums to come out of Winnipeg over the years. CB plays lead guitar, sings and acts as music director in the band.

Also on board the Train is Cary Bilcowski AKA Sgt. Bilco, a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Cary plays bass, baritone guitar and sings with STH.

Donovan Locken is a super-talented multi-instrumentalist (and carpenter!) who plays mandolin and sings in STH.

Drummer, Jaime Carrasco lays down the beat to hold the whole thing together.

The music is soulful, thoughtful, toe-tapping and memorable.
