Plays for Contra English Swing Waltz Dance
Homebase is in (or near) Seattle, WA
Notes: Based in the Seattle area, Contra Sutra features members of KGB, the Syncopaths, and Lift Ticket. We play tunes original and traditional, with a hearty dose of groove and the odd pop-folk vocal. Dave Bartley: Fretted Things (guitar, mandolin, cittern...); Ryan McKasson: Fiddle & Viola; Marni Rachmiel: Windy Things (flute, sax, piccolo, vocals) and one of a number of great percussionists. Contra Sutra has in recent years toured California numerous times, playing at Monte Toyon Spring Fever twice, Fall Has Sprung in Grass Valley, the Hayward Twelve Hour Twirl, Monterey’s Foggy Moon Ball, and dances all around the Bay Area. We’ve also enjoyed playing at May Madness in AZ, Cabin Fever in Knoxville TN, Cascade Contras and the Corvallis weekend in OR, and we’re looking forward to Dance in the Desert in Tucson this November, and Alaska in 2017.
