Wintergreen, produced by Grammy Award-winning Gordie Sampson (LeAnn Rimes, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts), is a fresh and vibrant take on folk music, bringing the bands furious live show energy to a song. But at the core, Wintergreen is about offering a light in the darkness to those who need it.
The East Pointers are comprised of fiddler/singer Tim Chaisson, banjoist Koady Chaisson and guitarist Jake Charon. Known for their blistering live shows and palpable authenticity, the band has performed over 450 shows in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, UK, Europe, Mexico, United States and Canada.
