On the big stage at Homburg Theatre

Tim, Koady and Jake (photo: Jen Squires)JUNO-award winning, PEI based The East Pointers will perform at Homburg Theatre, Confederation Centre, Charlottetown on February 10.

Their new album, What We Leave Behind, was produced by Cape Breton songwriter-producer Gordie Sampson and features a selection of songs ranging from somber and hauntingly beautiful to joyous and celebratory. What We Leave Behind carves a new path for The East Pointers, as they continue to blur the lines between traditional and popular music and develop a devoted fan-base around the globe.

The band recently won four Music PEI award’s including Group Recording of the Year, Roots Contemporary Recording of the Year, Song of the Year, and Touring Artist of the Year.

The East Pointers—fiddler/singer Tim Chaisson, banjoist Koady Chaisson and guitarist Jake Charron—mix transatlantic Celtic sounds with three part-harmonies.  They have been collecting accolades since the release of their debut album Secret Victory 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.
