PARLOR SESSION No. 3 // The East Pointers // BORDER CROSSING

The East Pointers

Back by popular demand, The East Pointers are a roof-rattling, adrenaline-fueled monster trio from the great northern homeland of string players, Prince Edward Island. The trio is guitarist Jake Charron, fiddler Tim Chaisson, and banjoist Koady Chaisson. The Chaisson cousins are members of the seventh generation of PEI's reigning musical dynasty; you can hear long-standing tradition -- Scottish, Irish, and French -- in the writing on their debut release Secret Victory and on What We Leave Behind (produced by Gordie Sampson), which the The East Pointers released since we last saw them in 2017. The trio is known for bringing the traditional sounds of Eastern Canada, a region called more Scottish than Scotland, to a rising generation of music lovers.

About the Parlor Sessions: On assorted winter Sundays we welcome American roots musicians in to the Parlor Room for a concert, a break for hot soup, and an all-comers' jam. These Parlor Sessions are our antidote to the dark of winter. They're a little like home, if home is a houseful of wicked great musicians. The Parlor Sessions are sponsored by Goat Peak Strings, the Easthampton show with rare, vintage, and handmade instruments; and with generous donations from Captain Jack's Roadside Shack, Bread Euphoria, Hungry Ghost, and Florence Pie Bar.

ZOË DARROW

Zoë Darrow has been playing the fiddle since she was four, kicking up dust in the Pioneer Valley and way beyond with her famously riotous blend of Celtic and Old-Time fiddling that feels a little like punk music and always takes our breath away. Darrow is a longstanding member of The Fiddleheads and the Trio de Pumpkintown. She’s played for contradances all over the United States and points north. She’s graced The Parlor Room stage dozens of times, sitting in with bands who request her. We’ve waited a long time to have her take that stage as her own. We are forward to any tunes and any guests she chooses to bring with her …

On assorted winter Sundays we welcome American roots musicians to the Parlor Room for a concert, a break for hot soup, and an all-comers' jam session. These nights -- The Parlor Sessions -- are our antidote to the dark, chill of winter. A little like home, if home is a houseful of wicked great musicians. [The 2016 Parlor Sessions are sponsored by Goat Peak Strings, which sells vintage, rare, and handmade stringed instruments in Easthampton, Massachsuetts, and by Captain Jack’s Roadside Shack, Hungry Ghost, and Bread Euphoria.]
