The Contra Banditos are a New England Contra Dance Band. We play traditional old time fiddle
and celtic music for dances, parties and festivals.
Music at a dance is both live and lively and is provided by a band which typically includes fiddles,
piano/keyboard, guitar, flute and whistle.
Musicians play traditional jigs, reels, waltzes and polkas. We throw in other styles of music
and songs...cajun, old time, blue grass and so on....
We formed in the late eighties as a small group of friends playing music together. The band has
since evolved into a larger group of regular players on all the traditonal instruments.
The Contra Banditos enjoy playing music for the benefit and enjoyment of our community. We would
like to preserve and promote the knowledge and practice of traditional New England dancing and
to keep the spirit of old time music alive.
