Virtual June 5, 2020 Friday - Pacific Northwest - Skandia Music and Dance - FIRST FRIDAY DANCE. We are excited to bring you a new group, the Six Feet Back Band! Clear out your living room for some dancing! Info: www.skandia-folkdance.org.

Virtual June 19, 2020 FridayPacific Northwest - Skandia Music and Dance - THIRD FRIDAY DANCE.  We are very pleased to have two local masters of their craft: Peter Michaelsen playing fiddle and (possibly) hardanger fiddle, and Bart Brashers playing nyckelharpa. Although Peter now lives in Port Townsend, he lived for many years in Seattle and has offspring here, so we consider him local. Bart lives in Ballard, which is about as local as you can get. Both of these fellows play with a great dance feel and also musicality, so we are looking forward to a wonderful dance evening.  Info: www.skandia-folkdance.org.
