Date/Time
Monday 14 August 2017
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

We are very sorry that due to a misunderstanding between the String Contingent and the Festival, some of the band will be back in Australia on this date, so we are cancelling the concert. Entirely our fault – with 30 events in 8 weeks, this was the one thaqt got away. So sorry to disappoint you.

Diluain, 14 An Lùnastal, 8f
‘The String Contingent’ Folk, classical, jazz and bluegrass

The String Contingent first wowed us with a set at the Alasdair Fraser concert in the 2015 Fèis, 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. Their camaraderie and banter shines through, as does their passionate musicianship and instrumental skills.

The evening will open with music from the new trio ‘Harta’ from this area with Christine Martin, Nyckleharpa; Jack Evans, Bouzouki and Ross Calderwood, Smallpipes.

Dhrùidh The String Contingent air luchd-èisteachd na Fèis airson a’ chiad uair aig cuirm le Alasdair Friseal ann an 2015 leis a’ cheòl àraid aca a tha gar stiùireadh tro cheòl traidiseanta, ceòl
clasaigeach, jazz agus bluegrass. Tha feallsanachd ciùil aig na h-Astràilianaich, Chris Stone, dheall, agus Holly Downes, double bass, agus aig an Albannach, Graham MacLeòid, giotàr, a tha a’
taisbeanadh stoidhle gach neach-ciùil fa leth agus a’ briseadh crìochan nan gnèithean ciùil. Bidh càirdeas is craic ann am pailteas agus am meas air a’ cheòl agus an tàlant aca cho follaiseach ‘s a ghabhas. Bidh an còmhlan ùr ‘Harta’ a’ cur na h-oidhche air a casan, triùir às an sgìre fhèin, Cairistìona Mhàrtainn, nyckleharpa; Jack Evans, Bouzouki agus Ross Calderwood, a’ phìob bheag.
