Tunes, Jams & Classes

Contra Dance Fiddle Tunes Classes

Other Instruments Welcome
Do you play a melody instrument and want to learn some of those tunes you’ve been dancing to every week? The Second Thursday Fiddle Tunes Classes could be for you. We learn two or sometimes three tunes per class. The sessions are taught by local musicians who are masters of the contra genre and great teachers. Instruments that show up include fiddle, mandolin, banjo, concertina, cello, guitar and sometimes even a bass playing melody. The classes are held in SE Portland from 7pm to 9pm. We usually have about six to eight people with room for more! If you have questions, or to get on the reminder list, please email climb2ski(at)
