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.
Brothers Trevor and Corey Pool and childhood pal Ben Nesrallah bring you a unique blend of original and traditional stringband music that recalls the drive and debauchery of an old-time kitchen party. Mandolin, fiddle, banjo, guitar, and their signature three-part harmonies unite to bring you that down-home, boot-stompin’ performance you been hankerin’ after.
“Take a ride with Montreal’s folk purveyors…”

“They are masters of that fresh, summer, old timey sound.”
– Ear To The Ground Music (Ravenna, OH)
This past June, the Locomotive released their newest album, “The Noisy Locomotive, Vol. 1 & 2”, which coincided with a performance at the Montreal Folk Festival, and a tour across Ontario and Quebec with the Ever-Lovin’ Jug Band. Most recently, the boys performed at the Ottawa Folk Festival. The boys have been featured live on CBC, CHOM, CKCU, CHUO and CKUT radio.
“This fall at the Ottawa Folk Fest, [the trio] were able to command the audience with a grace only capable of the most confident musicians. Their commitment to the relaxed atmosphere of the kitchen parties of Canada’s yesteryear is impressive, but what’s even more impressive is their ability to sound like a full party with only three instruments!”
