The East Pointers Announce New Aussie Tour Dates

Following sold out tours in Canada and the UK, multi award-winning modern folk trio, The East Pointers, announce new shows for their Aussie Summer run, which will see them hit up another 14 venues and festivals across the country late February to May.

Earning rave reviews for their East Coast shows over the New Year, including Woodford Folk Festival where Yellow Wiggle, Emma Watkins, danced and performed AUSLAN for #1 charting single, Wintergreen, The East Pointers are excited to continue their run around the country.

“We’ve enjoyed some really special moments on this tour so far,” said Koady Chaisson, banjo/tenor, guitar/moog player.

“It’s been a very difficult time for Australia with the bushfires and we were blown away by the spirit of the community who came together at our shows in early January. Their generosity helped us raise over $5000 for Red Cross Australia's bushfire relief efforts.

“We’re inspired to be back on the road, giving Australia everything we’ve got.”

With a brand new album, Yours To Break, in hand, The East Pointers are redefining the genre and hooking the next generation of folk fans with Billboard-worthy pop hooks, deep acoustic grooves, trance-like Celtic trad and rich, three-part harmonies.

Amassing over 2 millions streams to date, Yours To Break was produced by multi Grammy Award-winning songwriter and renowned producer, Gordie Sampson, and is musically complex, technically brilliant and transcends the borders of traditional folk music.

“We’re passionate about tradition, but believe it doesn’t belong in a box in the attic, getting dusted off for special occasions and boring the pants off kids! Traditions belong to the people who shepherd them into the next generation,” said Koady.

“The core of the music is traditional Celtic, but on this new album, fiddle tunes are grounded in complex rumbling bass lines; dirty Americana explorations spin on a dime into acoustic flamenco accents; indie electric guitar licks and modern keyboard tones turn traditional solos into urgent dance-party vibes.

Yours To Break is the best expression to date of our love for so many different types of music and the fact that we are comfortable enough in our own musical voice to start expressing that is really exciting for us!”

Internationally recognised trail-blazers, The East Pointers bring new album, Yours To Break, back to Australia for more roof-raising shows across Western Australia, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, New South Wales and Queensland.
