SULTANS OF STRING
Call in your reservations for our April 22 show with Sultans of String to 401-725-9272.
3-time JUNO (Canada’s Grammy) nominees Sultans of String are an energetic and exciting band thrilling audiences with their genre-hopping mix of Celtic reels, Flamenco, Gypsy-jazz, Arabic, and Cuban rhythms as fiery violin dances with kinetic guitar while funky bass lays down unstoppable grooves. Throughout, acoustic strings meet electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound. Celebrating 10 years together, Sultans of String have hit #1 across Canada on Top 10 national radio charts, #6 on Billboard (world), and received multiple awards and accolades, including three Canadian Folk Music Awards, plus invitations to perform/ record with such luminaries as The Chieftains, Sweet Honey In The Rock, and David Bromberg. Sultans of String is led by violinist Chris McKhool who was raised in a Lebanese-Egyptian household bursting with music and diversity. When he first heard founding guitarist Kevin Laliberté’s rumba rhythm, their musical synergy created Sultans of String’s signature sound – the intimate and playful relationship between violin and guitar. From this rich foundation, the duo grew as they added in-the-pocket bass master Drew Birston. The group has performed live on BBC TV, BBC Radio, and the internationally syndicated shows WoodSongs, World Cafe, and on SiriusXM in Washington. Don’t miss their Rhode Island debut!
