Here’s a fun fact about traditional music: it’s not always old even when it sounds like something lifted straight from a vintage ceilidh. Look to the East Pointers for proof as they unwrap new possibilities in a musical style that dates back centuries but remains relevant on multiple, divergent continents.Tim Chaisson, Jake Charron, and Koady Chaisson filter generations of musical heritage through contemporary hands to make traditional music that is ridiculously hip. With tours across North America, Europe, and Australia the East Pointers are helping to prove that traditional music is one of the best reasons on the planet to raise a pint and spend the night dancing.
