The East Pointers
The East Pointers are three young men whose talent and penchant for traditional Celtic tunes of decades past greatly belie their respective ages. And while each member of the freshly formed trio is an accomplished musician in his own right, their recent union is a testament to their shared output being, to borrow a common adage, greater than the sum of its parts. Hailing from Prince Edward Island, Canada, two of the three a part of the 6th generation of heralded legacy of fiddlers and folk musicians. Hear them at Irish Fest perform the traditional music with a contemporary twist.
In 2015 they won three PEI Music Awards: New Artist of the year, Roots Traditional Recording of the Year and Artist of the Year.
