The East Pointers
PEI Canada’s The East Pointers released their debut full-length, Secret Victory, on October 9, 2015. The East Pointers (Tim Chaisson, Koady Chaisson, Jake Charron) have been touring Canada, the UK, US and Australia to support their new release.

The East Pointers won 'New Artist of the Year' and ‘Roots Traditional Recording of the Year’ at the 2015 Music PEI Awards, won ‘2015 Artist of the Year’ at Showcase PEI, were nominated for ‘Group Recording of the Year’ at the 2015 Music PEI Awards, and were nominated for ‘Traditional Instrumental Recording of the Year’ at the 2015 ECMA Awards.

With Secret Victory, The East Pointers unwrap new possibilities in a musical style that dates back centuries yet is still relevant on multiple, divergent continents. Almost without even trying, the trio makes original traditional music seem ridiculously hip. Also the most fun thing on the planet to dance (and raise a pint) to.
