Today we have a new track from Canadian folk three-piece The East Pointers, a cover of David Bowie’s classic ‘Heroes’.

The video sees the folk trio in an incredibly intimate setting, sat around a coffee table doing their thing, trading little glances and huge sounding three-part harmonies – all the while giving Bowie’s huge hit ‘Heroes’ a little bit of a make over. Using, nothing more than a guitar, a fiddle and a banjo, the cover hits all the right notes and is sure to please even the most die-hard Bowie fans.

With a huge year behind them, having toured Europe, Australia, USA and of course their native Canada the group are poised for an even bigger 2017, including a trip to our shores for WOMADelaide and WOMAD NZ and a slew of headline shows for Australia not far behind – dates below.
