Yellowstone Cellars & Winery will host an evening of bluegrass and Americana harmonies with Song Dog Serenade on Saturday.
The trio of Scott Moore on guitar, Nate Smallwood on mandolin and Paddy Moore on upright bass formed in 2012 to perform a local bluegrass showcase. In 2017, Mike Blohm joined on banjo and dobro, adding another layer of spice to the sound.
The band’s name is derived from the unique song of the Montana coyote — or Song Dog as it was called by early Native Americans.
The quartet is known for their unique arrangements, musicianship and signature three- and four-part harmonies. From their first few song selections in the beginning, Song Dog Serenade's repertoire has grown into a long list of traditional and contemporary bluegrass/Americana music and original songs.
Though the musicians take their melodies seriously, they also enjoy having fun with it.
The unique, lighthearted quartet play Yellowstone Cellars & Winery, located at 1335 Holiday Circle, from 8 to 10 p.m. on Saturday. Admission is free.
