Canada's The East Pointers are turning up the heat on their Australian tour, announcing new dates in ACT, NSW, WA, SA, TAS and VIC. The growing tour will see the band play at over 25 festivals and venues across the country, including South Coast Folk Club (exclusive appearance).Ontario guitarist Jake Charron and 7th generation Prince Edward Island musicians Tim (fiddle) and Koady Chaisson (banjo) make traditional music seem ridiculously hip. An adrenalized, roof-rattling, performance monster, the trio’s excellent debut album Secret Victory, penned mostly in Australia in early 2015, features the beautiful songs, free-wheeling, feisty instrumental jigs, stomps and reels and heart-breaking harmonies have made them... torchbearers for a new wave in traditional music.
Returning to Australia in December 2015 the band played to huge crowds at Woodford Folk Festival, becoming the highest selling act at the festival two years running, performing at the massive Amphitheater venue ahead of Courtney Barnett and bringing in the New Year at the festival's largest venue. They've since gone on to get crowds to their feet and dancing at Cygnet Folk Festival, Illawarra Folk Festival, Sydney's The Gaelic Club and at venues across regional Tasmania as part of the Small Halls Tour.
"The East Pointers, a three-piece jigs-and-reels band from Canada, have this way of over-revving their engine to implosion point and then, just before the musical catastrophe eventuates, they re-lease the handbrake and their machine screams off with heart-stopping momentum. You see it as much as hear it, because at that exhilarating moment when banked-up pressure converts into raw artistic energy, biblical numbers of people are transformed into ground-stomp-ing, elated dervishes, sending a swirling cloud of dust so high that it resembles a primal geological event. Nice one, Woodford." (The Australian)"
