The East Pointer’s New EP, “Safe In Sound” Is a Trad Music Gem!

If you haven’t heard the latest EP to come from Tim Chaisson and Jake Charron of The East Pointers of Prince Edward Island, then I strongly suggest you check it out. It’s available now wherever you stream your music, but we’ve included a link below!

While their style stems from the old school ways of traditional music, over the years The East Pointers have created a modern take that encompasses all aspects of  traditional music, but modernized to appeal to a new generation of listeners, and “Safe In Sound” is no exception.

In keeping with the traditional sounds of fiddle music, you’ll hear amazingly composed instrumentals such as “Goolaholla, “ and the heart-wrenching “Koad’s Jig.” Another song that will tug at your heartstrings is “We Will Meet Again,” performed with another PEI native, Rose Cousins. On the flipside of that is “Best Surprise.” This track is a fun, upbeat song that has a great melody, with a very catchy chorus!

The East Pointers have just wrapped up a very successful tour of the Maritimes, but saved the one last date of the tour for their home on PEI, where they play the Confederation Center of the Arts on December 16th, 2023. This night will be a very special one, indeed. The night will mark two years since Tim, Jake and Koady last performed together, also on the Confederation Center stage to a sold out audience on December 16th, 2021. Tragically Koady Chaisson passed away suddenly on January 6th, 2022. He was 37.

Our own Sarah MacDonald had a chance to catch up with Tim Chaisson this past week to talk about the new EP, the current tour, making the decision move forward together with Jake, and so much more.
