In a contra dance, the dance figures are similar to those of Old-time square dancing except the figures are made up of lines of leaders and followers facing each other. Many of the regular Tapestry contra bands play Old-time music (similar to bluegrass), but the music on any given Saturday contra may reflect music traditions from New England, French Canadian, Irish, Scottish, Cape Breton and modern compositions.
