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.
