The East Pointers—fiddler/singer Tim Chaisson, banjoist Koady Chaisson and 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. As a follow-up to 2015's internationally acclaimed, JUNO Award-winning debut "Secret Victory," their new "What We Leave Behind" shares stories previously unheard but framed by a familiar context. The album reflects on the traditions of Canadian Celtic music, where it comes from, and what it means to the people, but also strides in new directions. With a captivating balance between their traditional-sounding instrumental tunes, and catchy radio-ready songs, The East Pointers reach out with open arms to a wide range of listeners, inviting them to discover a new love of folk music. They come to Michigan with a new release, "Yours to Break."
