Renowned acoustic chamber-folk trio The String Contingent are Australians Chris Stone (violin) and Holly Downes (double bass), with Scotsman Graham McLeod (guitar). They have reached ‘the upper echelon of instrumental exploration, arrangement, composition and performance’ (Tony Hillier, Rhythms Magazine), and are now expanding their geographical horizons.

The String Contingent have performed multiple times at all of the major folk and world music festivals in Australia, and have toured extensively in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. 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 Magazine).

The String Contingent’s live performances are a joyful combination of precision, refinement and beauty, balanced with visceral energy and drive.
