Lopa Kothari with new music from across the globe, plus a live studio session with Canadian band The East Pointers.
The East Pointers came together on Prince Edward Island in Canada's Atlantic Maritimes. Cousins Tim Chaisson (fiddle) and Koady Chaisson (banjo), who were born on the island, found themselves joined in regular informal kitchen parties by guitarist Jake Charron - it wasn't long before they decided to make a go of a band. They offer a fresh, youthful take on the area's traditional music.
