Come dance, or just enjoy the music and a chance to hear a famous fiddler.

The dance will be at the San Juan Island Grange hall on Saturday, Nov. 18, from 7 to 9 p.m. Donations of $10 are requested or $5 for students. As always, every dance is taught and no partner or experience needed. In November, the Saturday contra dance features nationally known fiddler Vivian Williams playing with Phil Katz on melodeons and Joe Micheals on guitar, as the band Simple Pleasures. This will be a special opportunity to enjoy Williams’ playing — she’s a big star in the old-time fiddling world. The caller this month is Michael Karcher. He’s young and enthusiastic, up-and-comer in the Northwest and beyond.
