"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.

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, while striving to make it sustainable as well. 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 main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
