The East Pointers - Colston Hall presents, Sunday 19 January 2020
Fiddler and singer Tim Chaisson, banjoist Koady Chaisson and guitarist Jake Charron have spent the last two years touring Canada, the US, the UK, and Australia in support of their JUNO Award winning album, Secret Victory. In 2016, they won ‘Touring Artist of the Year’ at the Music PEI Awards and ‘Ensemble of the Year’ at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. Their sophomore album, What We Leave Behind, was produced by songwriter/producer Gordie Sampson and released in September 2017. What We Leave Behind carves a new path for The East Pointers, as they continue to blur the lines between traditional and popular music and develop a devoted fanbase around the globe.
Captivating audiences with their contemporary folk, JUNO award-winners The East Pointers put human experience at the heart of their artistry. Taking cues from traditional Canadian Celtic musicality, the three-piece produce radio-ready, lyrically-driven tracks that are both powerfully poignant and beautifully melancholic. Armed with a fiddle, banjo and guitar, Tim Chaisson, his cousin Koady Chaisson and Jake Charron produce songs that stem from the sorrows of real life and comment on the importance of human connection in the face of adversity. This “smart, stomping maritime folk” (The Guardian) sees The East Pointers bring a modern, effervescent twist to an already beloved genre.
