“Chris McKhool and the boys were fantastic! They can play my Bar Mitzvah.”
Bob Ezrin, Producer (Pink Floyd, Kiss)
The Sultans of String’s’ stunning 2011 show was one of the most popular we have presented, so a return was always in the cards. We’re delighted to have them back.
The five members of this 3-time JUNO nominee and Billboard-charting band will again thrill us with their genre-hopping passport of Celtic reels, flamenco, gypsy-jazz, Arabic, Cuban and South Asian rhythms. Rebecca Campbell is a frequent guest of the band and makes a welcome return to the festival with her wonderful singing.
The Sultans have produced a stunning series of albums and collaborations, celebrating musical fusion and creativity with warmth and virtuosity. Fiery violin dances with rumba-flamenco guitar, while bass and percussion lay down unstoppable grooves. Acoustic strings meet with electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound, while world rhythms excite audiences to their feet with the irresistible need to dance. It’s hard to take it all in, and it can make a complete show seem to pass in the blink of an eye.
So join us on this Super Summer Saturday night. It’ll be Sultanic!
