Tim Chaisson

Apr 17, 2013

    Tim Chaisson's U.S debut The Other Side was released on February 26, of this year and was called "a handsomely crafted piece of work" by The Guardian. The album won the East Coast Music Award for Roots/Traditional Solo Recording of the Year.

A few weeks ago, the native of Prince Edward Island, Canada, was scheduled to come play live and record an interview with me - but on that day - I all-but-lost my voice. Not wanting to subject Tim (or listeners) to an aggravated croak of an interview - we asked if he’d come in and just play.

What we have to share with you now, is the 4 song set Tim played at The Linda with his cousin, Cody Chaisson, joining him on mandolin.
