The String Contingent - 18th October 2018

When: Thursday 18 October 2018 8:00pm – 11:00pm

Where: The Barrel Room - 26 Wharf St, Tauranga

Renowned acoustic chamber-folk trio The String Contingent have toured extensively in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Scandinavia, with their unique sound that confidently walks the line between folk, classical, jazz and bluegrass. Australians, Chris Stone (violin) and Holly Downes (double bass), with Scotsman Graham McLeod (guitar) share a musical ethos that showcases the individuality of each musician and eclipses genre.

2017 saw the launch of their fifth album, Iterations, recorded in the beautiful acoustic of the Windsong Pavillion at Four Winds in Bermagui, NSW. Holly, Chris and Graham embarked on a two-part residency at Four Winds to explore different approaches to music-making and to “pull back the curtains” on their creative process. The resultant album features music that they developed at and between the two sessions, and live free improvisation, which they collectively and spontaneously created in concert.

Join us for an intimate debut performance at Tauranga's newest music venue The Barrel room, for what is guaranteed to be a wonderful performance of their latest album and back catalogue.
