The East Pointers with guests The Mae Trio
Monday, August 8th
Doors 8pm/ Show at 8:30pm
Tickets $15 advance // $18 at door + GST
**ADD $1.50 service charge for online tickets
The East Pointers are Tim Chaisson (fiddle), Jake Charron (guitar) and Koady Chaisson (banjo). You can expect free-wheeling, feisty instrumental jigs, foot-stomps and reels—or some combination of the three. Featuring two heirs to a P.E.I. musical dynasty in cousins Tim Chaisson (fiddle) and Koady Chaisson (banjo), joined by guitarist Jake Charron, the Pointers bring the East Coast kitchen party straight to us.
The Mae Trio are a young, contemporary folk band from Melbourne, Australia. Since the release of their critically acclaimed album “Housewarming” in 2013, they have made a vibrant splash in the international acoustic music scene across Australia, UK and America. Humbly authentic, dynamic and striking, the trio write powerful original songs, accompanying them on cello, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and ukulele and stunning three part harmonies. Their disarming on-stage presence and originality makes for a spellbinding and refreshing live experience.

Donovan Woods’ work is guided by a mantra that only sounds simple: Good songs win. Woods was raised in the small city of Sarnia, Ontario, to the sounds of country music, with a healthy dose of folk and pop, a combination that instilled in him a strong belief in the power of a good melody, the importance of everyday language and the potential of a carefully-crafted song. While amassing a catalogue of rousing and acclaimed music of his own, he has worked with some of the top songwriters in North America to craft cuts for performers ranging from Alan Doyle to Billy Currington.
Throughout his Polaris Prize nominated, Hard Settle, Ain’t Troubled, what is clear is that Donovan Woods possesses a voice made to tell stories – his stories, and ours – and one that can’t be ignored.
