The String Contingent, an acoustic chamber-folk trio from Scotland and Australia, are bringing their own blend of Celtic, folk, classical and Americana-flavoured compositions to Katherine for one performance only on Friday, August 31 at 7.30pm.
The String Contingent have performed at all the major folk and world music festivals in Australia and toured extensively in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Scandinavia.
Poppy Searle, Director of Godinymayin Arts and Culture Centre, said: “The String Contingent bring their diverse musical backgrounds in Celtic, classical, jazz and pop into a performance that is melodic, evocative and timeless. They have built a strong audience following among young music lovers in the southern states, and we are delighted to be able to share their music with our local audiences.”
The group comprises of Chris Stone on violin, Holly Downes on double bass and Graham McLeod on guitar.
In 2017 they launched their fifth album, Iterations, recorded in the beautiful acoustic of the Windsong Pavillion at Four Winds, Bermagui NSW.
Holly, Chris and Graham embarked on a twopart residence at Four Winds to explore different creative approaches to music-making. The resultant album features music they developed at and between the two sessions, and live free improvisations, which they collectively and spontaneously created in concert.
