Electrodes to play contra dance season opener

PORT ANGELES — The Electrodes will play, with Abigail Hobart calling, at the Black Diamond Contra Dance on Saturday.

A beginner and review workshop will start at 7:30 p.m. with dancing at 8 p.m. at the Black Diamond Community Hall, 1942 Black Diamond Road.

An $8 donation is requested for adult admission and $4 for those younger than 18.

This is the Electrodes’ first appearance in Port Angeles.

The band features Joe Micheals on guitar, Joe Bowbeer on five-string electric violin and Marcy Kubbs on piano.

They play a mix of Celtic, Appalachian and original dance tunes.

The next contra dance is slated for Oct. 6 with David Bartley, Kate Powers and Marnie Rachmiel performing.
