A popular Canadian folk band, famed for intimate performances and striking connections with audiences, will be performing on a South West stage later this month.

Award-winning trio The East Pointers will perform at Bristol Folk House, in Park Street, on June 29 at 7.30pm.

The band – made up of fiddler and singer Tim Chaisson, banjoist Koady Chaisson and guitarist Jake Charron – originates from Canada’s Prince Edward Island and are known for dazzling musicianship and vibrant melodies.

The band has earned much acclaim from critics, winning the Ensemble of the Year prize at the Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2016.

They backed that prize up in 2017 with a Juno Award 
for their album Secret Victory, which also won the Traditional Roots Album of the Year award.

Tickets, priced £14.50-20 are available from 01179 262987 or online at
