PHILLIPS — Three-time JUNO nominees & SiriusXM Award winners Sultans of String are set to raise the rafters with their 10th Anniversary Celebration Tour, with a stop at the at the Phillips Area Community Center, at 7 p.m. on Aug. 3. 

They’ll have their new, special-edition vinyl album in tow, celebrating this milestone decade, aptly titled “10.”

Touring non-stop in support of their latest CD, “Subcontinental Drift,” this “energetic and exciting band, with talent to burn!” (Maverick Magazine, UK) serves up a musical passport of Celtic reels, Flamenco, Gypsy-jazz, Arabic and Cuban rhythms.  Fiery violin dances with kinetic guitar, while funky bass lays down unstoppable grooves. Acoustic strings meet electronic wizardry to create layers and depth of sound. 

Sultans of String’s music has hit No. 1 across Canada on top 10 national radio charts; No. 15 on Billboard (world music); top 10 on CMJ (world); and has received multiple awards and accolades.

Sultans of String have been crossing North America for the past several years at many taste-making forums such as NYC’s legendary Birdland, Boston’s Scullers and California’s hip music scene, including the San Jose Jazz Festival. 

Sultans of String were filmed by MPBN’s Maine Arts! in a feature concert, and have performed live on BBC TV, BBC Radio, Irish National Radio, and the internationally syndicated shows WoodSongs, World Cafe, and on SiriusXM in Washington.
