The Ripples are happy providers of contra dance music in the Midwest and beyond.  Based in Cincinnati and Louisville, we put out a contemporary-meets-traditional sound with hints of jazz, bluegrass, world beats, and straight up pop hits.  We’ll get you groovin’ in no time at all!

“I follow The Ripples because I like them and their music. Then I listen to them play and remember that I don’t just ‘like’ their music; it fills me with joy and energy in ways that I usually forget are possible!” —Louisville Dancer
