The East Pointers are proof that traditional music isn’t necessarily old – even when it sounds like something lifted straight from a vintage ceilidh. Cousins Tim and Koady Chaisson on fiddle and banjo, respectively, and guitarist Jake Charron, effortlessly make traditional music seem ridiculously hip. Also the most fun thing on the planet to dance (and raise a pint) to. With their 2015 album Secret Victory, The East Pointers unwrap new possibilities in a musical style that dates back centuries yet is still relevant on multiple, divergent continents. As Tim Chaisson, whose solo career as a singer/songwriter is thoroughly established – as his well-received sets in Massey Hall presentations of Matthew Barber and the Good Lovelies in the wake of 2015’s Lost in Light attest – puts it, they attempt to “breathe some new, original life into traditional music. A lot of times, people think of it as music for an older generation but we’re hoping to introduce a whole new generation of listeners.”
