The Sultans of String

May 2nd, 2020, 7:00 p.m.
Gravenhurst Opera House
The Sultans of String have been thrilling audiences with their genre-hopping music from Celtic reels to flamenco, to gypsy jazz and international rhythms. They bring fiery violin dances with rumba-flamenco guitar, while bass and percussion lay down unstoppable grooves. Maverick Magazine says they are a band with “talent to burn.”

Sultans of String have been criss-crossing North America for the last several years. Equally at home in a concert series, folk or jazz club, or festival setting, they have been featured at many taste-making forums such as JUNOFest, legendary jazz club Birdland in NYC, the renowned Celtic Connections Festival in the UK, and California’s hip music scene, including the San Jose Jazz Festival. They recently sold out Koerner Hall (Toronto’s Carnegie Hall), and performed with Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Stratford, Ontario and Niagara Symphony Orchestras, as well with Kingsfield POPS in Maine. Sultans of String also perform for Youth, and perform Pops, Christmas and Family/Education shows with symphonies. Sultans of String were recently filmed by MPBN’s Maine Arts! in a feature concert, and performed live on BBC TV, Irish National Radio, and the internationally syndicated shows WoodSongs, World Cafe, and on SiriusXM in Washington.
