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.
All three artists grew up step-dancing before they could walk, grasping fiddles before they could talk. The Chaissons are from a large family (50-some cousins, no kidding) in Eastern Prince Edward Island, where ceilidhs and kitchen parties on the weekend were as regular as church on Sunday. Jake grew up with fiddle-playing brothers in a family that knew the value of music, and by his mid-twenties found himself on the road accompanying Irish luminaries such as Liz Carroll.
