Show Info

Known for dizzying world-music jams, polyrhythms and revved up riffs, the Sultans of String can't be pinned down, geographically speaking — it's Sable Island meets the Silk Road, with detours through the Gypsy-jazz coffeehouses of Eastern Europe , next an East Coast kitchen party, then over to the majestic Arctic. Seamlessly traversing diverse themes of heart, place and tradition, fiery violin dances with kinetic guitar while a funk bass lays down unstoppable grooves. Throughout, acoustic strings meet electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound. Since their formation only 5 years ago, Sultans of String have been riding a wave of success, from their debut CD, "Luna", and 2nd offering, "Yalla Yalla!", both hitting # 1 on world/international music charts in Canada, to MOVE’s *quadruple* 2012 CFMA nominations, winning World Music Group of the Year. In the past 2 years alone, they've acquired a JUNO (Canada’s Grammy) nomination, 1st place in the International Songwriting Competition, and won this year’s Festivals & Events Ontario-Entertainer of The Year Award. -------- Under one roof in New England’s Pioneer Valley, Darlingside came together with five songwriters, a mandolin, a cello and violin, guitars and drums, a chorus of voices, and a van named Chauncey. Holed up in their home between a cornfield and the Connecticut River, they forged a seamless, exhilarating sound at the intersection of rock, classical, and folk music. The band recently released their debut full-length album ‘Pilot Machines’ and are currently shaking rafters along the eastern seaboard with their vibrant live shows.
