Raccoon Carnival Band!

The Raccoon Carnival at the Lake City Dance


UPDATE 8/18/23 – The Raccoon Carnival Band is currently full, but you can still contact Sarah to get on the wait list in case any spots open up! There is still room on the Phinney Community Contra Band.

Who is this for?
– The Raccoon Carnival band is all about working on crazy arrangements for contra dances and having a good time! It’s best suited for folks already comfortable playing at dance tempo who have a little experience playing for dances.

Here’s one what one of our multi part tunes looks like on paper :
Growling Old Man with walking line
Growling Old Man with harmony
We also provide fast and slow recordings of all the tunes!

What’s it sound like all together? This!


Where is it? – Phinney Ridge Neighborhood Center in Seattle

When is it? – Every other Thursday starting September 7th, 7-9pm, running through end of November.

How much does it cost? –  $150 for all 6 classes, or $30 per drop in class

What are the COVID precautions? –  To help keep the band healthy and safe for all participants, we require n95/kn95 masks to be worn during class. We also run a HEPA filter in the classroom.
