The East Pointers
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.

KATIE MARTUCCI / CAROLINE KUHN / LUCIA PONTONIERE

The Ladles have three part female harmony perfected - but their sound is more than that… They are an amalgamation of their respective histories and influences, blending Swing, Old-Time, Motown and Choral music into a sound all their own. Using solely acoustic instrumentation and three voices, they create a dreamy otherworldly atmosphere that draws audiences in and demands attention. They quiet noisy bars and liven up staid concert halls.

Just in case you were wondering, their name is fashioned after an altered "Ladies Room" sign in Jordan Hall at the New England Conservatory, where they were, at the time, the only female students in the undergraduate Contemporary Improvisation program.
