Tickets have been released for the fold band, The East Pointers at the Cambridge Junction on January 28.

The East Pointers are fiddler/singer Tim Chaisson, banjoist Koady Chaisson and guitarist Jake Charron all from Canada’s East Coast. Their palpable authenticity makes their instrumental tunes infectious rhythm-driven hits and ensures their lyric-driven songs connect as though they were looking right in your eyes as they say the words.

And it’s why listening to their brilliant and hotly anticipated second album What We Leave Behind – produced by East Coast-bred songwriter/producer Gordie Sampson – is akin to meeting up with an old friend.

As a follow-up to 2015’s internationally acclaimed, JUNO Award-winning debut Secret Victory, 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.

INFO: Tickets are £17 doors open at 6:30 with the performance starting at 8pm. Tickets can be purchased from www.junction.co.uk or call the box office on 01223 578 000.
