Annual QAC Fundraiser

2019: Knudsen Brady Clark Advisory Group – CIBC Wood Gundy – Quinte Branch presents The Sultans of String Live at The Empire Theatre!

Thursday December 12. 2019 – Three-time 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 three-time Canadian Folk Music Award winners bring their signature sound to well known gems such as Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, 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.

Sultans of String are joined on stage by Rebecca Campbell and Shannon Thunderbird.
