Date: September 27, 2020
Start time: 3:00 PM
End time: 4:00 PM
3x JUNO nominees and Billboard charting Sultans of String are serving up their first ever Interactive Live Stream concert in their brand new studio decked out with great gear and a fun, interactive set-up for the audience.
For the first time, all their fans from across Canada, the USA, Europe, Africa and beyond can come together for a special live concert experience.
“Our plans is to ZOOM the show, which is a super fun way to create a community experience among our fans, since we’ll all be able to see each other” says bandleader and Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal recipient, Chris McKhool. “We are going to recreate our debut album together, called Luna, that we recorded back in 2007. This is the album that started it all, and contains a lot of our hits and a few gems we don’t usually play as well”
Folks can tune in on Sun. Sept 27 at 3:00pm EDT (12:00 noon PST / 8:00pm in the U.K.)
Tickets are only $10 and can be purchased at:
This show is about an hour including audience questions at the end, and features the fabulous trio of McKhool (violin) and bandmates Kevin Laliberté (guitar) and Drew Birston (bass), plus very special guest vocalist Amanda Martinez!
Here are a few official videos from their various albums.

3x CFMA winners and 3x JUNO nominees Sultans of String create “energetic and exciting music from a band with talent to burn!” according to UK’s Maverick Magazine. Thrilling their audiences with their genre-hopping passport of Celtic reels, flamenco, gypsy-jazz, Arabic, Cuban and South Asian rhythms, the group celebrates musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity. Fiery violin dances with rumba-flamenco guitar, while bass and percussion lay down unstoppable grooves. Acoustic strings meet electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound, while world rhythms excite audiences to their feet with an irresistible need to dance.
