This is a very special show at Camelot with The String Contingent who will be launching their new album with some guest collaborators. Tickets are likely to go pretty fast so get in early and book them here – it is not to be missed!
Renowned acoustic chamber-folk trio The String Contingent are touring in support of their fourth album, Facets. Australians Chris Stone (violin) and Holly Downes (double bass), with Scotsman Graham McLeod (guitar) have reached ‘the upper echelon of instrumental exploration, arrangement, composition and performance’ (Tony Hillier, Rhythms). Their music ‘brings to mind the bluegrass records of Yo-Yo Ma and Edgar Meyer…with elements of Bach, Kronos Quartet and sometimes a splash of Philip Glass…they are incredibly skilled…’ (Ulf Torstensson, Lira).
Their new album, Facets, features some of Australia’s most revered musicians, including Sandy Evans, Genevieve Lacey, Julian Thompson, Linsey Pollak, Chris Duncan and Catherine Strutt, and showcases the stylistic flexibility of The String Contingent as they shift through baroque, classical, jazz, Indian, Celtic and Balkan elements to create a truly contemporary sound.
