‘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 of The East Pointers – 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 molded into something uniquely Canadian through a history which goes back generations.
‘They make a very nice sound.’ Clare Balding, BBC Radio 2 Good Morning Sunday
