SULTANS OF STRING: CHRISTMAS CARAVAN!
Celebrate the season with an adventurous musical trip around the world! 3x 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 these 3x Canadian Folk Music Award winners 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 Turkish twist on Greensleeves, as well as a Gypsy-jazz inspiredDjango Christmas, and a Rumba Flamenca-fuelled Jingle Bells.
Sultans of String are joined on stage by Canada’s singer to the stars, Rebecca Campbell (Bruce Cockburn, Alanis Morissette). The band’s companion Christmas Caravan CD which hit Billboard’s World Music charts (#6) and The New York Times Hits list, 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!
