      EVENT DETAILS
      Sultans of String - Christmas Caravan with 5 Special Guests

      Sultans of String - Christmas Caravan w/ special guests Rebecca Campbell, Lynn Miles,  Donné Roberts, Tamar Ilana, and Shannon Thunderbird  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, a djembe-driven Little Drummer Boy, a Turkish twist on Greensleeves, as well as a Gypsy-jazz inspired Django Christmas, and a Rumba Flamenca-fuelled Jingle Bells.  Sultans of String are joined on stage with special guests Rebecca Campbell, Lynn Miles, Donné Roberts, Tamar Ilana, and Shannon Thunderbird.  The band’s companion Christmas Caravan CD which hit Billboard’s World Music charts (#6) and The New York Times Hits list, features Campbell, as well as other luminaries: 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), Ruben Blades, a Turkish orchestra and more! “We wanted to make a real contribution to the Christmas repertoire, and hopefully create some new standards”, says bandleader and Queen’s Diamond Jubilee recipient Chris McKhool. ”This is a Christmas show and album, but approached from the perspective of a world-music band. We explored diverse genres, from Quebecois fiddle tunes to collaborating with a traditional Turkish string ensemble, and jump around from the classic sounds of the Andrews Sisters, to a Himalayan sleigh ride, African roots music, Gypsy-jazz, rumba flamenco, ska, and even the grandeur of the symphony."
