Celebrate the season with an adventurous musical trip around the world! 2017 Juno Award-nominated Sultans of String deliver an exuberant performance featuring originals, world-music-inspired classics, and seasonal favourites to warm your heart on a cold winter’s night.
From fiery fiddle tunes to a Caribbean sleigh ride, this surprising and delightful holiday fiesta heats up when Sultans of String bring their signature sound to well-known gems such as “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring”, “Little Drummer Boy”, “The Huron Carol” (with gorgeous newly-translated Indigenous lyrics), a “Feliz Navidad” ska party, a Turkish twist on “Greensleeves”, and much more.
About Sultans of String:
With a decade behind them, Sultans of String have hit #1 across Canada on Top-10 national radio charts, receiving awards and accolades along the way, including three Canadian Folk Music Awards. Bandleader and Ottawa native Chris McKhool was recently awarded a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for his work in creating community through music. McKhool’s violin plays against Kevin Laliberté’s rumba rhythm guitar, creating a rich foundation for bass master Drew Birston, jaw-dropping Cuban percussionist Rosendo Chendy Leon, and guitarist Eddie Paton.
