The East Pointers

Wed 11 Mar |



Join the acclaimed Canadian trio redefining modern folk music for a night of chart-worthy pop hooks, deep acoustic groove and juicy three-part harmonies.

Named by ABC as one of the hottest folk bands on the planet, The East Pointers are already internationally acknowledged as musical trailblazers. Their latest album Yours To Break is set to light a path for a new generation of music lovers who don’t care for labels.

The band’s soundscape oozes traditional Celtic heart, but on Yours To Break fiddle tunes are grounded in complex rumbling bass lines, dirty Americana explorations turn on a dime into light-hearted guitar features, and playful keyboard tones turn traditional solos into urgent dance-party journeys;

Their smash-hit album What We Leave Behind was one of the international standouts of 2017, nominated for the Traditional Roots Album of the Year at the 2018 JUNO Awards and attracting over four million streams on Spotify. The band has enchanted audiences throughout Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the UK, Europe, Mexico, the USA, and Canada. Now they bring their new album to Hobart.
