Want to play some contra dance tunes?

There's a friendly group that gets together each 2nd Wednesday at the Old Songs Community Arts Center to play contra dance tunes. Join in, if you're wanting to learn new tunes or polish up a particular tune in your repertoire. We are very tolerant of beginners and novices. Don't be shy. If you want to play a tune slowly, we can play it slowly. If you want to get up to dance speed, well we can do that to.

Bring your own Portland Collections and Waltz Books, or look on with one of us. Or, try to play by ear, if that's what you like to do.

Here's the public Facebook event for details...

Sorry, no bagpipes, but just about any instrument will fit in. We've got a regular piano player, though, so if you play piano, you might need to work out some turn-taking.

Hi all, The contra tune session will be taking a break over the summer. So, no sessions in June, July, and August. We'll resume in September most likely. Check the Old Songs website for info.
