Sultans of String – Christmas Caravan, with special guests Rebecca Campbell, Kellylee Evans, Lynn Miles, and Kristine St-Pierre
Celebrate the season with an adventurous musical trip around the world! Three times 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 three time 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 inspired “Django Christmas”, and a Rumba Flamenca-fuelled “Jingle Bells”.
Sultans of String are joined on stage by Ottawa daughters, Rebecca Campbell, Kellylee Evans, Lynn Miles and Kristine St-Pierre. 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), Ruben Blades, a Turkish orchestra and more!
