Doors 7.00pm for 7.30pm performance
Ontario guitarist Jake Charron and 7th generation Prince Edward Island musicians Tim (fiddle) and Koady Chaisson (banjo) make traditional music seem ridiculously hip. An adrenalized, roof-rattling, performance monster, the trio’s excellent debut release ‘Secret Victory’, penned mostly in Australia in early 2015, features the beautiful original and traditional songs, free-wheeling, feisty instrumental jigs, stomps and reels and heart-breaking harmonies have made them torchbearers for a new wave in traditional music. On their fourth tour to Australia in two years, the band are hitting WOMADelaide and then venues and clubs all over the East Coast for seven glorious weeks with old favourites and sneaking in some new tunes and songs that they’ve been prepping for their new album, due out late 2017.
‘The talent is flat-out-knock-you-on-your-ass calibre, and the chemistry between these players is as good as it gets. So fine and so instinctive is their playing that you’d swear they’d been playing together for 20 years.’ The Guardian (CAN)
