The String Contingent’s self-titled debut melds the raw wildness of Scottish folk, the organic dynamism of American bluegrass and the refined acoustic sensibility of the classical string trio. Chris Stone (violin), Graham McLeod (guitar) and Holly Downes (double bass) have produced a collection of original acoustic music that retains the spontaneity of free improvisation within the structurally integrated ethos of the chamber ensemble.
“Absolutely fantastic, the originality and beauty of your music cannot be underestimated. The quality of your playing is outstanding… a truly enlivening, exciting experience.”
- Nicola Black, Acoustic Village Programmer, Wickerman Festival, UK.
