The East Point­ers guests at Close to the Ground

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY/ENTERTAINMENT -

Fid­dlers’ Sons are ex­cited to be shar­ing their Close to the Ground stage at the Kaylee Hall with a trio of tal­ented young mu­si­cians, the East Point­ers, on Thurs­day, July 16, at 8 p.m.

Banjo player Koady Chais­son, fid­dler Tim Chais­son and gui­tarist Jake Char­ron all pos­sess a tal­ent and pas­sion for tra­di­tional Celtic tunes of decades past that greatly be­lies their re­spec­tive ages. The Chais­son cousins are part of the sixth gen­er­a­tion of a her­alded legacy of fid­dlers and folk mu­si­cians from P.E.I. To­gether they have taken their mu­sic across the world in var­i­ous mu­si­cal con­fig­u­ra­tions. Char­ron, based in On­tario, has strummed, plucked and played pi­ano along­side a laun­dry list of award-win­ning per­form­ers from around the globe.

“The East Point­ers are a must­hear group that will get ev­ery foot in the house tap­ping and bring a smile to ev­ery face within earshot,” says a re­lease.

Close to the Ground hap­pens ev­ery Thurs­day night at the Kaylee Hall which is lo­cated at the in­ter­sec­tion of routes 3 and 4 in Pooles Cor­ner, just out­side of Mon­tague. All ages are welcome with ad­mis­sion by cash only at the door which opens at 7 p.m. There will be can­teen ser­vice avail­able, a 50/50 draw and mu­si­cal record­ings avail­able for sale along with Quinn’s new book, “Is­land Char­ac­ters”.
