The East Pointers
The cousins Chaisson are part of the sixth generation of a heralded fiddlers from PEI. When Jake visited the island a Canadian late-night kitchen party was sure to follow with fiddles and friends, guitars, Guinness and banjos. As their trunk of original and traditional tunes and songs started to fill up, the trio put them to tape and took to the road. The result is The East Pointers, who released their debut album ‘Sweet Victory’ in 2015 and have been touring the world almost constantly since then. In early 2017 they won a JUNO Award for best roots album in Canada for ‘Sweet Victory’. Their new album will be released in autumn 2017.
The East Pointers will have a local support from Edd Donovan

Breathtaking, unique and radiating regency refinement, Pittville Pump Room is monument to the more than 100 years of fame Cheltenham enjoyed as a Spa town, and perhaps the most famous example of regency architecture in the area.
