It was a special weekend just past for music aficionados, as the acclaimed Sultans of String joined the Symphony of the Kootenays for two concerts, Saturday and Sunday. The first show featured the Sultans' "Symphony show, and almost 500 turned out to hear it. Sunday featured founding member Chris McKhool's Fiddle Fire, aimed at children and families. All and all, a trip around the globe with the Sultans' world beat sensibilities. The event was the Symphony's third concert of the 2013/14 season.
