THE EAST POINTERS

Supported by Wilson McGladdery

The East Pointers hail from Canada's Prince Edward Island and feature banjoist Koady Chaisson, fiddle player Tim Chaisson, and guitarist Jake Charron.

The cousins Chaisson are part of the sixth generation of a heralded legacy of fiddlers and folk musicians from the island. When Jake would visit PEI a late -night kitchen party was sure to follow - fiddles and friends, guitars and Guinness, banjos and bad jokes. As their trunk of traditional and original tunes - some with an Irish influence, some Scottish, others rooted in the Canadian Maritimes - started to fill up, the trio realized it was time to put some to tape and take them on the road. The result is The East Pointers who are already attracting attention across the world.

Wilson McGladdery are a duo whose strong friendship shows in their performances, which are witty, heartfelt and a feast of original material.
