PORT ANGELES –– The chicken pickin' Appalachian songs of the Cort Armstrong Band will uncork Olympic Cellars' annual concert series Saturday.

The free Red, White & New Wine Release and Toga Party will mark the cellars' release of new wines, including the Mount Olympus red blend, two new chardonnay vintages and the 2013 Madeleine Angevine.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Those donning togas will be entered in drawings for free tickets to one of Olympic Cellars' upcoming concerts. There is a costume contest at 4 p.m.

Admission is also free to concert, which is 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Bring lawn chairs. Food and wine is available for purchase, or you cn bring a picnic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Armstrong's music carries influences of country blues, fiddle tunes, square dances, honky-tonks; anything that shook the floors of old mountain grange halls and parties.

The winemakers' summer concert series, 7 p.m. on Saturdays from July 19 to Aug. 23, covers pop music from a Beatles tribute band to kilt-wearing Korean world music.

New this year, Olympic Cellars is offering a concert series “season pass.” Admission to all six concerts is just $75. Passes can be purchased online at tinyurl.com/PDN-cellarshow.

The winery is located at 255410 U.S. Highway 101, between Port Angeles and Sequim.
