Bring your dancing shoes and join the fun during an all-ages community contra dance with caller Amy Carroll and local band Power House from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 22, on the lawn behind the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave.

All ages and abilities are encouraged to participate and all dances will be taught. Carroll of Seattle has been folk dancing longer than she can remember and calling dances for all ages and abilities since 1987.

The band Power House includes local musicians Kate Powers on fiddle, Ethan Powers on guitar and banjo, Kristina Tormala on Oregon bass and Chris Burt on guitar and mandolin. In the case of inclement weather, the contra dance will be held inside the Sequim High School cafeteria at 601 N. Sequim Ave.

There will be one more opportunity to enjoy live music at the Sequim Library this summer when rockabilly and blues band The Soul Ducks performs on Sept. 12.

The Summertime Music! outdoor concert series is supported by the Friends of Sequim Library.
