Also stay tuned for an afternoon fiddle class before the potluck. 





Michael Karcher hails from Seattle and has been having the time of his life calling around the Pacific Northwest over the last few years - including calling at the infamous Northwest Folklife Festival and other contra camps. When wasn't isn't calling, he was pursuing a PhD in statistics at the University of Washington and dancing in and around Seattle.




Country Capers, hailing from Poulsbo Washington, Have been playing together for over three decades now. They come to us bringing tunes with wings of both modern and ancient notes of Scottish and Irish music as well as Norwegian and sweetish influences as well. Their music is sure to inspire us to dance. The band is made up of duo Jane Landstra & Ken Embrey on fiddles, guitar, concertina, and piano.





  There is a workshop at 7:00pm.  The dance begins at 7:30.  All other dance details are on the "About Our Dance" page on this website.
