Skillful picking and expert three and four-part harmonies are just part of what you can expect from the Dogwood String Band, who have been plying their brand of high-energy acoustic music across the Pacific Northwest. Melding sophisticated songcraft, irrepressible spirit, and remarkable instrumental ability, this band truly captures the spirit and enthusiasm of bluegrass music. Three members are songwriters and everyone sings lead so there is always something fresh to listen to. If you catch a live DSB performance, you will become an instant fan.
