2x JUNO nominees Sultans of String are an “energetic and exciting band with talent to burn!” (Maverick Magazine, UK). Thrilling audiences with their genre-hopping passport of Celtic reels, flamenco, Gypsy-jazz, Arabic, and Cuban  rhythms, fiery violin dances with kinetic guitar, while in-the-pocket bass and percussion lay down unstoppable grooves. Throughout, acoustic strings meet with electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound. Since forming 10 years ago, Sultans of String have hit #1 across Canada on Top 10 national radio charts, and received multiple awards and accolades, including a SiriusXM Award, 1st place in the ISC (out of 15,000 entries), 3 Canadian Folk Music Awards, plus invitations to perform/record with such luminaries as The Chieftains, Sweet Honey In The Rock, and David Bromberg.  To learn more about our wonderful February performers, check out www.sultansofstring.com .

PLEASE NOTE:  Due to the Legion being closed for the next few months for renovations on its roof, this concert will be held at the Lions Hall, 200 Doug Duncan Drive.  Doors will open at 7:45.
