ArtsLink presents the Sultans of String, three-time JUNO (Canada’s Grammy) nominees and Billboard charting musicians who are set to raise the rafters with their globetrotting tunes on Thursday, September 19, at 7:30 pm
at Tyler Consolidated High School. This free concert is being presented thanks to funding from the Stealey Community Fund.

Thrilling audiences with their genre-hopping passport of Celtic reels, Gypsy-jazz, Arabic and Cuban rhythms, fiery violin dances with kinetic guitar, while bass and percussion lay down unstoppable grooves. Throughout, acoustic strings meet electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound.

Celebrating a milestone 10 years together, Sultans of String’s music has hit #1 across Canada on Top 10 national radio charts, #6 on Billboard (World Music chart), top 10 on CMJ (World), and received multiple awards and accolades, including 1st place in the ISC (out of 15,000 entries), 4 Canadian Folk Music Awards, a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal (for bandleader Chris McKhool), plus invitations to perform/record with such luminaries as The Chieftains, Grammy winners Sweet Honey in the Rock, and Richard Bona (Paul Simon, Herbie Hancock).
