‘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

The East Pointers are three young men from Canada whose talent and penchant for traditional Celtic tunes of decades past greatly belie their respective ages.

Formed in 2014, each member– banjoist/vocalist/step-dancer Koady Chaisson, fiddle player/vocalist Tim Chaisson, and guitarist/vocalist Jake Charron – is an accomplished musician in his own right, and their union produces a blend of Celtic tunes, songs and step-dances moulded into something uniquely Canadian.

Cousins Tim and Koady Chaisson both come from Canada’s Prince Edward Island on the exposed Atlantic coast. Here, through six generations of performing and playing, the Chaisson family have written themselves into the island’s musical history. Now the cousins, joined by Jake Charron, carry the island’s tradition forward through The East Pointers.
