Episode # 151 ~ Sultans of String!

"Sultans of String are Canada's ambassadors of musical diversity. The band romps through an energized adventure of Latin, Gypsy-jazz, Middle Eastern and folk rhythms, celebrating musical fusion and human creativity with warmth and virtuosity..."

Indeed! Your host Lynn Thompson witnessed this magic during a sold out evening at the Dancing Bean Cafe in Chemainus on Vancouver Island on Sunday evening, January 25, on night #11 of the 'Sultans of String' tour in BC.

This brief interview with violinist Chris McKhool was a 'live' on air phone call during 'Blue Plate Special' on CHLY.ca (in Nanaimo) a few days before their Chemainus appearance, with guitarist Eddie Paton and bassist David Woodhead. These three are based in Toronto and Oakville, Ontario.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
