Transatlantic Celtic folk power trio, and JUNO Award winners The East Pointers, come to Albany in a unique and intimate event held in the Kalyenup Studio of the Albany Entertainment Centre with cabaret bar and food service.

Dazzling musicianship and wild live shows have connected The East Pointers with audiences across the globe, making original roots music the hippest thing going. Prince Edward Island fiddler Tim Chaisson, banjoist Koady Chaisson and Ontario guitarist Jake Charron write about real life, sketching out its joys and sorrows in vivid strokes. That palpable authenticity makes their instrumental tunes practically cartwheel and infuses their lyric-driven songs with poignancy. Listening to The East Pointers’ brilliant second album What We Leave Behind – produced by superstar songwriter/producer Gordie Sampson – is akin to meeting up with an old friend – and then going out for twenty drinks.

As a follow-up to 2015’s internationally acclaimed, JUNO Award-winning debut Secret Victory, What We Leave Behind reflects on the traditions of East Coast Canadian Celtic music, but also takes giant strides in new directions. With a captivating balance between their traditional-sounding instrumental tunes, and radio-ready songs, The East Pointers reach out with open arms to a wide range of listeners, inviting them to discover a love for a new style of music.
