At 8 p.m. the live music will kick in: fiddler Ruthie Dornfeld of Seattle will join with guitarist Forrest Gibson for dancing till 11 p.m.
Admission is a suggested donation of $7 for adults and $3 for those 17 and younger.
As with all contra dances, there’s a caller, and this Saturday that’s Marlin Prowell of Bellingham, a seasoned dancer who also organizes dances in his town as well as a summer country dance camp on Orcas Island (www.bellinghamcountrydance.org).
November’s next dance is an extra one at the Black Diamond Community Hall on Monday, Nov. 18.
Perpetual E Motion, a nationally known band, will be back in Port Angeles, and since that’s a school night, it will play from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
George Marshall will be the caller, with admission at $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and teens and $5 for children.
