THE STING CONTINGENT: Friday 30 Jan. Doors Open 7:30PM Concert Starts @ 8PM - 10PM

Join The String Contingent for a wonderful acoustic concert at the Cowwarr Art Space where a lot of their album 'Talk' was composed during their residency with us in 2012.  We have experienced the delight of The String Contingent performing at the Art Space previously and have been looking forward to their return for a while.  

The String Contingent have been described as “the upper echelon of instrumental exploration, arrangement, composition and performance.” (Tony Hillier, Rhythms Magazine). Australians Chris Stone (violin) and Holly Downes (double bass), with special guest Catherine ‘BB’ Bowness (NZ/USA, banjo), compose music of sparkling beauty and originality and perform with virtuosity, finesse and a light-hearted twinkle. Their sound combines diverse musical backgrounds in celtic folk, classical, jazz and bluegrass into evocative, exciting and original music. They have played all the major acoustic festivals in Australia and New Zealand, released three albums and a live EP, including their 2013 offering ‘Talk’, with a new album featuring Australia’s most unique and excellent musicians in a special collaborative project on its way.
