Event Description

The East Pointers hail from Canada’s Prince Edward Island and feature banjoist/vocalist/step-dancer Koady Chaisson, fiddle player/vocalist Tim Chaisson, and guitarist/vocalist Jake Charron.

The cousins Chaisson are part of the sixth generation of a heralded legacy of fiddlers and folk musicians from the island. When Jake would visit PEI a late-night kitchen party was sure to follow – fiddles and friends, guitars and Guinness, banjos and bad jokes. As their trunk of traditional and original tunes – some with an Irish influence, some Scottish, others rooted in the Canadian Maritimes – started to fill up, the trio realized it was time to put some to tape and take them on the road. The result is The East Pointers, who released their debut album ‘Sweet Victory’ in October 2015 and have been attracting worldwide attention since with months of continuous touring across the world.

“Furiously energetic yet organic, celebratory yet cool, this is an impressive calling card for a band who are soon likely to making waves around the world”. Songlines
