With dexterous playing allied with rousing energy, The East Pointers are shaking fresh life into Canadian Celtic folk traditions and taking them to a whole new generation of listeners.

Banjoist Koady Chaisson and fiddler Tim Chaisson are cousins and belong to Prince Edward Island's foremost musical dynasty. Their fluid ensemble playing and command of a vast repertoire is testament to seven generations of music-making in their family. Ably augmented by Ontario-born guitarist Jake Charron, himself an in-demand accompanist for many leading artists, The East Pointers have quickly established themselves as a world-class live act.

The release of their debut album 'Secret Victory' in 2015 brought them several awards and set them on a breathless touring schedule through Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States, and in to Europe.
