Contra Dance: Countercurrent with Lindsey Dono calling - May 9 2020

Countercurrent is a contra dance and folk music band from western Washington, featuring driving guitar, foot percussion, lyrical fiddle, and harmony vocals. Over 10 years of playing together, Brian and Alex have developed a style that brings forth the joy and nuance in the music they play. The combination of Brian’s technical and tasteful tune-smithing with Alex’s punchy rhythms and gifted song-writing is not to be missed. As they spread their music across the northwest and beyond, Countercurrent continues to push their own boundaries with new compositions, lively arrangements, lush harmonies, and driving grooves to keep you dancing along. Visit www.countercurrentmusic.com or find them on facebook for music and tour info. 

Lindsey Dono delights in traveling the west coast to lead contras at evenings, camps, and festivals. With serene instruction and meticulous programming, Lindsey transforms newcomers into avid dancers while keeping experienced regulars piqued. A dancer for more than twenty years, Lindsey brings knowledge of waltz, swing, and other dance styles to the caller's mic.
