Violin and guitar will come together when a music group takes to the stage later this month.

Sultans of String will perform at the Quay Theatre in Sudbury on January 27.

The three-time Juno award nominees have been described as “absolutely brilliant” by BBC Radio and are well known for the genre-hopping work.

Their repertoire includes Celtic, flamenco, Cuban and Arabic music as well as funk music and violin dances.

They use acoustic strings throughout their show with their music a multi-layered sound, described as a performance not to miss.

Sultans of String are led by Chris McKhool, a well-known and award-winning Canadian musician and producer, who received a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal for his work in building the community.

Chris, who grew up in a Lebanese-Egyptian household, joined up with guitarist Kevin Laliberte to create the Sultans of String’s signature sound.

From this foundation the dynamic duo work with a range of other artists.

Sultans of String have been touring shows including UK’s legendary Celtic Connections, and New York City’s Birdland and the Lincoln Center.

They sold out Koerner Hall (Toronto’s Albert Hall), and performed with Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Stratford, Ontario and Niagara Symphony Orchestras, as well with Kingsfield POPS in Maine and Maryland’s Annapolis Symphony.

Sultans of String were filmed by MPBN’s Maine Arts! in a feature concert, and performed live on BBC TV, BBC Radio, Irish National Radio, and the internationally syndicated shows WoodSongs, World Cafe, and on SiriusXM in Washington.

The band are performing at The Quay Theatre on Saturday, January 27, with the show starting at 7.30pm.
