March 25, Saturday, Contra Dance! Nettles with Lindsey Dono calling

Event:  25-Mar-2017

The Nettles return to Eugene to play their folkadelic booty-shaking contra dance music with Laura Brophy on fiddle, Kevin Johnsrude on guitar, Michael Proctor on bass and Brian Bucolo on drums. Playing traditional music from all over the world, The Nettles create a strong rhythmic groove under soaring improvisations. With rhythmic drive and melodic fluidity, they propel contra dances into the stratosphere. Bring your water bottle, it's going to get hot!

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 the interest of 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, and she is sure to have a great evening of dances in store for us!
