The String Contingent combine diverse musical backgrounds in Celtic, classical, jazz and pop into a melodic, evocative and timeless musical style.
Australians, Chris Stone (violin) and Holly Downes (double bass), with Scotsman Graham McLeod (guitar) share an approach to music that showcases their individuality and produces a joyful balance of precision and refinement.
Equally comfortable on a festival stage or playing for an intimate crowd, their camaraderie shines through each performance, as does their extraordinary musicianship and skill.
2017 saw the trio explore different creative approaches to music-making during a residency at the Windsong Pavilion in Bermagui NSW. The result was Iterations, their fifth album, which features beautiful, spontaneous instrumental exploration.
