21h30 – The Noisy Locomotive  +Little Stella  +Anna Scouten

It was one night in Mountain, Ontario, under the influence of a midsummer moon and a lot of fresh air that The Noisy Locomotive was born.

The band has since spent the past few months bringing their blend of country, folk and bluegrass to the packed underground metros around the island of Montreal, while raising a ruckus on street corners, festivals, and in venues across Ontario and Quebec.

With the release of their latest album‚ ÄúLive from Woodlawn‚ Äù, and some fire in the belly, the Locomotive is hitting the road.

Little Stella is a young Folk/Rock band from Ottawa, Ontario. Their most recent self-titled EP, released in October 2012 showcases their original approach to both lyrics and music. Live, Little Stella exhibits surprising attention to musical detail, without compromising the high energy sought by show-goers.

Anna Scouten has been attracting a lot of attention from a young age as a talented and sophisticated performer, with steely blue eyes and an arresting voice. Based in Montreal and originally from Bowen Island BC, this 20 year old is on the verge of blowing the top off Canadian indie-folk music. Her lyrics are cutting and her melodies are unexpected. With heavy influences of Bon Iver, Feist, Joni Mitchell and Billie Holiday, and a history steeped in jazz and folk music, this is a young musician you’re going to want to keep an eye out for.

Anna has worked with Vancouver’s Joshua Hyslop, with her voice featured on the track What Have I Done? on the album Where the Mountain Meets the Valley (2012). She also recorded with her sister, Sarah Jane Scouten on the record Magpie Waltz (2011), and the two can be seen touring together across the country.
