Countercurrent is a powerhouse acoustic duo based in western Washington, featuring fiddle, guitar, harmony vocals, and foot percussion. Their music draws from Irish, American, and other traditions to create a sound that is at once timeless and new and exciting. Alex Sturbaum and Brian Lindsay display a musical fluency that comes from a decade of playing together at contra dances, concert halls, jam sessions, festivals, bars, and living rooms all across the continent. When dancers and listeners experience the blend of lyrical melodies, groovy chords, thumping percussion, and vocal harmonies all simultaneously, the reaction is usually “How does so much music come from just two people?!”
30 minutes before music starts, a $3 or $5/person cover charge (excluding children under 12) will be collected. All funds go to the artists.
