Juno & CFMA nominated world music super group Sultans of String celebrate their new CD, \'Symphony!\' at Ten Pound Fiddle Concert Series at the MSU Community Music School Known for dizzying roots music jams, poly-rhythms and revved up riffs, the Sultans of String sound can\'t be pinned down -- it\'s Sable Island meets the Silk Road, with detours through the Gypsy-Jazz coffeehouses of Eastern Europe, next an East Coast Kitchen Party, over to the majestic Arctic, then to the bustling markets of Lebanon! Fiery violin dances with kinetic guitar while a funky bass lays down unstoppable grooves. Throughout, acoustic strings meet electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound. www.sultansofstring.com
