Sultans of String presented by Performing Arts Trail

December 4 7:30 to 9:30 pm

Celebrate the season with an adventurous musical trip around the world! Three time JUNO Award nominees Sultans of String deliver an exuberant performance featuring band originals, world-music inspired classics, and seasonal favourites to warm your heart on a cold winter’s night.

From fiery fiddle tunes to a Caribbean sleigh ride, this surprising and delightful holiday fiesta heats up when Sultans of String bring their signature sound to well known gems such as Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, The Huron Carol (with newly-translated Indigenous lyrics), a djembe-driven Little Drummer Boy, a Feliz Navidad ska party, a Turkish twist on Greensleeves, a Gypsy-jazz inspired Django Christmas, and a Rumba Flamenca-fuelled Jingle Bells.

The band is joined on stage by guest vocalist Rebecca Campbell (Bruce Cockburn, Jane Siberry, Emmylou Harris). Their companion Christmas Caravan CD landed on the New York Times Christmas Hits list and the #6 spot on Billboard’s world music charts, and features such luminaries as The Chieftains’ very own Paddy Moloney, platinum vocalist Nikki Yanofsky, JUNO winners Alex Cuba, Benoit Bourque of Bottine Souriante, Grammy winners Sweet Honey in The Rock, Richard Bona (Paul Simon, Herbie Hancock), a Turkish orchestra and more!
