Portland Intown Contra Dance is up to growing a lively community through weekly zesty, joyful, intergenerational contra dancing to live music. They insist no partner and no experience is needed to have a delightful and connected dance. Dela Taylor will teach each of this evening’s dances, bringing her humor, and fresh, light calling style. She’ll be joined by Volution, a dynamic band that deftly moves from tunes with energy and zest to those with room and gravitas. Adams Carney is on fiddle and sometimes accordion, Helen Newell is on another fiddle, and Nolan Rogers is on cello, playing both tunes that hold places of honor in the New England folk tradition and tunes inspired by European links.
