Celebrate the season with an adventurous musical trip around the world! 3x 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 3x 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.

The band is joined on stage by Canada’s singer to the stars, Rebecca Campbell (Jane Siberry, Lynn Miles, Ian Tamblyn, Paul Quarrington, Parachute Club). Their companion Christmas Caravan CD hit Billboard’s World Music charts (#6) and The New York Times Hits list, and 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), a Turkish orchestra and more!
