The East Pointers at the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center Sept. 21

The East Pointers, a dynamic trio from Prince Edward Island, Canada, will bring their stomping rhythms, dazzling musicianship and original tunes and songs to the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center, 2133 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee on Friday, Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m. ?Cousins Tim and Koady Chaisson are members of a seven-generation musical dynasty credited with preserving and renewing the mix of Irish, Scottish, Acadian and French-Canadian folk traditions that make up the Prince Edward Island sound. Multi-instrumentalist Jake Charron from Ontario also comes from a musical family and has performed and recorded on guitar, keyboards and banjo with his brother, a champion fiddler. The group has won multiple awards including Canada’s prized Juno for Traditional Roots Album of the Year for their first album, Secret Victory, in 2015. Their follow up 2017 album, What We Leave Behind, deftly leverages the whole spectrum of human emotion, drawing inspiration straight from the world they live in. That’s particularly evident in the original song, “Two Weeks,” which reflects the need to leave home to find work, something well-known to residents of PEI.  The flip side of the poignant songs, both on the album and in concerts in North America, the United Kingdom and Australia, are the scorching instrumental tunes that “had the audience dancing…and cheering for more,” according to Canadian Beats.  The band made their Milwaukee Irish Fest debut in 2017.  “The band serve up a spectacular mix of traditional contemporary music: instrumental prowess and lyrical thoughtfulness.” - the music.  Concert tickets are $25 in advance, $29 on concert day, $10 for students with ID and free for ages 12 and under. For more information and to order tickets online, go to www.ichc.net or call (414) 345-8800.
