Best of the Sultans Livestream this Saturday! and new video

Hi folks!  Just six days until our Sultans of String January 23, 8:00 pm EST Livestream #5,  Best of the Sultans Edition! 

Limited tickets available here https://sultans-lockdown-smackdown.eventbrite.ca

Let’s super-spread some good live-streaming vibes and keep connected during our lockdown. Isolating doesn’t have to be lonely!  And we can celebrate the inauguration of a new U.S. president at the same time!  Sultans of String band members Chris McKhool, Kevin Laliberté and Drew Birston perform the “Best of the Sultans”, beamed right into your living room! As featured on the NY TIMES HITS LIST and the BILLBOARD WORLD MUSIC CHARTS!

Eddie Paton and Rebecca Campbell will also join us with performances for songs from their musical lairs.  Eddie will be playing two very cool instrumental guitar pieces by guitar icon Rick Emmett of Triumph. And Rebecca will be performing a gorgeous song of her own, accompanying herself on guitar.

We have kept the ticket price low with a minium $10 donation for the show, as many of our friends and fans are out of work right now. Please contribute what you can to support the arts through these strange times! $1 from each ticket sold is being donated to our UN Refugee Agency fundraiser: http://fundraise.unhcr.ca/sultansofstring

Thanks and look forward to seeing you all soon!

“Sultans of String are still ground-breaking after all the decades. The music is of-this-moment, our moment. It is a tonic, fresh air, in the midst of all that has separated us.”

“It was so intimate. Every seat was perfect, front row centre. It’s a great way to establish personal connections with the artists.”

 

 

AAAAANNNNNDDDDD

Just for fun, I tried recreated the title track from our Refuge album as a solo looping piece. My experiment was to use as many pedals as I possibly could in the live recording. I hope you enjoy it! https://youtu.be/FkZkP1Pf3E0
