The East Pointers (CAN) & Mel Parsons NZ Tour

After bringing down the house at WOMAD this year, JUNO-Award winning Canadian trio The East Pointers announce their return to New Zealand in January 2018 for a run of dates with NZ luminary, Mel Parsons.

Dazzling musicianship and wild live shows have connected The East Pointers with audiences across the globe, making original roots music the hippest thing going. Currently on a world tour, the trio released their second album, What We Leave Behind in late September.

“Traditional music has always been at the core of what we do as a band,” explains Jake Charron. “There's something powerful about a style of music that has been passed on for generations around the world.”

New Zealand fans of the trio can see them live when they touch down for their tour with Mel Parsons in early 2018.
