WEEKEND: Stickshift Annie to perform at Peninsula dance

Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — Stickshift Annie and her band, Kimball & the Fugitives, are heading for another Olympic Peninsula Dance event at the Port Townsend Elks Lodge, 555 Otto St., tonight.

Stickshift Annie, aka Annie Eastwood, and slide guitarist Kimball Conant are known around the Northwest for their blues, Latin, swing and rock 'n' roll.

Along with the other Fugitives — drummer John Rockwell and bassist Larry Hill — the bunch will take the stage at 8 p.m.

In addition, Paul Kelly and Claire Puntenney of Port Angeles will teach a beginning cha-cha lesson at 7 p.m. Admission is $15 for instruction and dancing.

No experience and no partner are necessary to join the dance, while experienced movers are encouraged to come help beginners.

The nonprofit Olympic Peninsula Dance organization hosts all-ages dances at the Elks Lodge on a monthly basis, with the next one set for Nov. 16.

That Friday night dance will feature the Buz Whitely Big Band and a foxtrot lesson taught by Derek and Pamela Perkins of Sequim.

“Join us and keep the dances going,” said Olympic Peninsula Dance spokeswoman Carole Nervig.
