Protecting Ontario's Environment

A Virtual Benefit Concert with Sultans of String & Friends

With the Ontario government’s continued attacks on the environment such as, stripping back protections for endangered species, gutting the powers of Conservation Authorities, increasing the use and abuse of MZOs to speed up sprawl, and resurrecting two zombie 400 series highways – we need to come together. 

Please join us for a virtual fundraising concert hosted by Sultans of String in support of Environmental Defence’s work to protect Ontario's environment. Three-time JUNO nominees and SiriusXM winners, Sultans of String are renowned for thrilling audiences with their genre-hopping passport of Celtic reels, flamenco, Roma-jazz, Arabic, Cuban, and South Asian rhythms, fiery violin dances with kinetic guitar, while bass and percussion lay down unstoppable grooves. The virtual concert will include special guest appearances from our Executive Director Tim Gray, Elder Dr. Duke Redbird, dancer Tamar Ilana, singer Rebecca Campbell and more. 

You can enjoy this exciting night-in with an array of locally-made treats including non-alcoholic cider paired with specially selected gourmet snacks - all delivered to your doorstep in zero waste packaging.

All event profits go to support the work of Environmental Defence Canada to protect Ontario’s environment.
