The East Pointers connect folk music’s traditional past with its invigorated present. Guitarist Jake Charron, banjoist Koady Chaisson, and fiddler Tim Chaisson craft joyful, Celtic-influenced folk songs and foot-stomping instrumentals with a distinctly Maritime flavour. Their energetic show features traditional and original songs that will make you want to raise a pint or dance a jig.
The trio’s Juno nomination this year adds to a list of accolades including a 2017 Juno Award for Traditional Roots Album of the Year as well as a 2016 Canadian Folk Music Award for Ensemble of the Year. The band also recently won four Music P.E.I. Awards including Group Recording of the Year, Roots Contemporary Recording of the Year, Song of the Year and Touring Artist of the Year and wrapped sold-out tours of Australia, UK and the US.
