Sultans of String in Concert – Fundraiser
Friday February 28th – $25 per ticket
Sultans of String 3x JUNO nominees and Billboard charting Sultans of String are an “energetic and exciting band with talent to burn!” (Maverick Magazine, UK). Thrilling audiences with their genre-hopping passport of Celtic reels, Flamenco, Gypsy-jazz, Middle Eastern and Cuban rhythms, fiery violin dances with kinetic guitar, while bass and percussion lay down unstoppable grooves. Throughout, acoustic strings meet electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound.
Celebrating a milestone 10 years together, Sultans of String have been on an impressive trajectory with an astonishing number of awards and accolades in tow, including 3 Canadian Folk Music Awards, a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal (for bandleader Chris McKhool), 1st place in the ISC (out of 15,000 entries), and invitations to perform/record with such luminaries as The Chieftains, Sweet Honey In The Rock, Richard Bona (Paul Simon), Alex Cuba, and Ruben Blades.
Sultans of String have been criss-crossing North America for the last several years at many taste-making forums such as NYC’s legendary Birdland, Boston’s Scullers, and London’s Trafalgar Square. They have sold out Koerner Hall (Toronto’s Carnegie Hall), and performed with Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Stratford, and Niagara Symphony Orchestras, as well with Kingsfield POPS in Maine and Maryland’s acclaimed Annapolis Symphony. Sultans of String were also filmed live by MPBN’s Maine Arts! and performed live on BBC TV & Radio, Irish National Radio, and the internationally syndicated shows WoodSongs, World Cafe, and on SiriusXM in Washington.
