The Third Saturday contra dance takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, July 21 at the San Juan Island Grange Hall in Friday Harbor. This time featuring Jay Finkelstein as the caller, and Quit Thinkin’ as the band.
Finkelstein is one of the favorite callers, hailing from Seattle and providing a good time teaching and helping folks through the dances. The band is headquartered in Ellensburg, with Pico Cantieni on fiddle and mandoline, Dave Barnet on guitar, and Scott Staples on bodhran and spoons.
$10 donation at the door, $5 students. All dances are taught, no partner or experience needed. Sponsored by San Juan Island Grange 966.
