GRAMMYs, Northern Tour, Burlington, Film screenings!
Hello friends! Thanks for checking out our newsletter items!
1- GRAMMY® BALLOT
I am pretty excited that we are on the Grammy® Ballot with our new album WALKING THROUGH THE FIRE ! If you are a voting member please check this out!
Title: Walking Through the Fire
Category: Global Music Album
Artist: Sultans of String
MORE INFO HERE! https://sultansofstring.com/2023/08/walkingthroughthefire/
A powerful collection of collaborations with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit artists from across Turtle Island. We are so fortunate to work with Indigenous artists, sharing their stories and experiences with our audiences so that we can all continue our work of learning about the history of residential schools, genocide, and intergenerational impacts of colonization. Music has a special capacity for healing, connecting, and expressing truth.
2- BURLINGTON ON THIS SUNDAY
We are very exited for our last few shows here in Northern Ontario – Red Lake, Kenora and Fort Frances, before making the drive to Burlington Performing Arts Centre (BPAC) this Sunday night! The Burlington Gazette says: “Some shows aim to entertain. Some are designed to engage. Walking Through the Fire: Sultans of String in support of the Downie Wenjack Fund, presented during Secret Path Week on Sunday, October 22nd at 7 pm at The Burlington Performing Arts Centre (‘BPAC’), is that rare live performance experience that will do both.”
