Celebrate the holidays with an adventurous musical trip around the world! Three-time JUNO Award nominees Sultans of String deliver an exuberant performance featuring original compositions, world-music inspired classics, and seasonal favourites to warm your heart on a cold winter’s day.
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, Greensleeves, and Silent Night, as well as a Hot Club jazz inspired Django Christmas, and a Rumba-Flamenca fuelled Jingle Bells. Sultans of String are joined by shimmering guest vocalist Rebecca Campbell, Indigenous Elder Shannon Thunderbird, Latin songstress Amanda Martinez of JAZZ.FM fame, and Saskia Tomkins, the Nyckelharpa virtuoso who acted as musical advisor to the hit musical Come From Away!
