Thanks for your interest in playing for the Family Dance!
The Family Dance is 'open band,' so if you play old-time or contra dance music, come on out!
We encourage youngsters who play an instrument to give it a try as well.

Here's a list of some of our most frequently played tunes.
Please suggest your own favorites when you (and your youngsters) join us!

Here's an ABC file with many of the tunes. (Click here for info on using ABC files).
Many of our tunes are also available in the Portland Collections.

Here are MP3s and written music, all in one file, for the Novelty Dances we do.
