Sultans of String Dec. 14
Northern Lights Festival Boréal is bringing Sultans of String back for another Christmas show. Celebrate the season with an adventurous musical trip around the world on Dec. 14 in the College Boreal concert hall, 21 Lasalle Blvd. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. 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 Sultans of String 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 Feliz Navidad ska party, a Turkish twist on Greensleeves and a Rumba Flamenca-fuelled Jingle Bells. This will be a night of seasonal favourites with an international twist. Tickets cost $30 in advance and $35 at the door. They are available online at tinyurl.com/ycsqsazy, or in person at the Festival Boreal office, 19 Grey St.; Jett Landry Music, 1119 Lasalle Blvd.; Old Rock on Minto Street; and at A&J Home Hardware, 469 Bouchard St.
