Hailing from New England, Nova is a young contra dance band that weaves the sounds of fiddle, accordion, and guitar into a rich tapestry of sound. Nova draws from both traditional repertoire and original compositions to create versatile, high energy and driving dance music.

“I know a big deal is made about how young they are, both as individuals and as a band… but the bottom line for me is that they make really, really good dance music.”
– Nils Fredland, contra dance caller and member of Elixir
