From one island steeped in musical history to another… The East Pointers will be joining us in 2017!
One of Canada’s most talked about musical exports in recent years – in equal demand in Australia and the UK as they are on home shores – The East Pointers are a multi award-winning, exhilarating trio, whose music more than doubles the power of three.
Cousins Tim Chaisson (fiddle/vocals) and Koady Chaisson (banjo/vocals/step-dance) are from the seventh generation of renowned Chaisson musicians from Prince Edward Island, and here join with guitarist Jake Charron, an Ontario native also from a strong family line of musicians. With each member an accomplished performer and multi-instrumentalist in their own right, and with traditional music very much in their DNA, the trio’s union produces an easily identifiable trademark of Celtic-influenced, yet wholly modern, tunes and songs that have very quickly established them as a formidable force in many corners of the world.
“Furiously energetic yet organic, celebratory yet cool, this is an impressive calling-card for a band who are soon likely to be making waves around the world.” Songlines
