Earth Day concert, Backstage, and new video
Hello all! I hope you are all well and keeping safe!
We have our next edition of BACKSTAGE this Friday, April 22 at noon featuring exceptional multi-instrumentalist Demetrios Petsalakis with live music and conversation.
Hailing from Athens Greece, Demetri performs in a variety of styles with a focus on Greek and Middle Eastern lutes. Influenced by the rich cultural diversity of Canada, Demetri incorporates musical elements from different traditions in order to create a contemporary sound that represents both his heritage and the community of which he is a part.
There are no actual tickets, simply join the Livestream at noon on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter or LinkedIn @sultansofstring
Much gratitude to Ontario Arts Council for their support!
Then later on at 7:00 pm EST on April 22nd please join us for our Earth Day Virtual Benefit Concert hosted by 3x JUNO nominated/SiriusXM winners, Sultans of String in support of Environmental Defence’s work to protect Ontario’s environment.
