Top Ten, f r e e track, online music lessons, live streams for kids/adults, CD release

Hello friends! Thanks so much for following our musical journey, negotiating the complex waters of a new reality…  I wanted to share few items with you here today!

1) Help us hit the Top Ten on the Indigenous Music Countdown

Help Sultans of String hit the Top Ten on the Indigenous Music Countdown, along with Indigenous artists Duke Redbird and Twin Flames and receive a  F R E E  TRACK!

We would be very grateful if you can email countdown@ncifm.com today to request our song, THE POWER OF THE LAND.

If you had sent sent an email last week, Thank You – you helped get us move up the list!  And we would love your help to keep the momentum going – please email once more to help us support this song and Duke’s work!

You can BCC me, and to show our appreciation, we will give everyone who lets us know that they requested the song a  f r e e  download!

Top Ten status on this chart unlocks a lot of opportunities for us to continue to promote this song. Indigenous Elder Duke Redbird’s words are more important than ever and we want to help get them out to a wider audience. Watch it here https://youtu.be/Tw7EPXtfT3w
Thanks so much, we really appreciate it!!

2)  Interested in online music lessons?

The boys in Sultans of String been doing some private teaching online over the last few months and quite enjoying it. If you’ve been considering upping your game, maybe now’s the time to take your guitar, ukulele, or bass playing to the next level.

Together you can work on technique, theory, repertoire, and any other topics that are relevant to your progress. All you need is an instrument and a decent internet connection to learn in the comfort of your own home. Email us to get in touch and set something up with Kevin or Drew.

3) Launching a new live streaming series

I have been learning all about cameras and live streaming – and am launching a new series of  f r e e streams for both adults and kids. To find out about them, please subscribe to the Facebook group of your choice. I am very excited to share the new streaming setup with you, and will also be performing for Zoom, YouTube, Meet, libraries, schools and performing arts centres over the next few months!

4) That Refuge CD release concert in October – off… for now…

We received an email this week that Trinity St Paul’s Centre, where we were going to have our (re)scheduled Refuge CD release concert in October, has cancelled all concerts for this fall, for obvious safety reasons. This was not a huge surprise. It makes me very sad that we cannot share this gigantic concert with all of you, live in person. I will be initiating a full refund for all those who ordered tickets already.

We DO have an amazing idea of how to share this project with you… Stay tuned for an announcement shortly!

In the meantime, you can hear the music of our amazing collaborators right here: http://smarturl.it/RefugeAlbum

Thanks everyone, and keep safe!

Lots of love and gratitude!
