A Portland, Oregon, band with influences ranging from rock to folk to country to jazz will bring its acoustic music to the Divided Sky in Meyers this weekend.

Scratchdog Stringband blends classic and contemporary Americana music with its songs.

“Andrew DeRossett (guitar, banjo, vocals) and Kimbo Kumada (bass, vocals) hold down the rhythm section tight and tough, while James Rossi (fiddle, vocals) is free to explore the high notes on the violin,” according to the band’s online biography. “The band’s dynamic instrumentation is showcased in ‘The Scratchdog Shuffle,’ where the string-boxes are passed between the members in almost every variation, providing an intricate backdrop to their blended vocals.

“Their repertoire ranges from fierce boot-stompers to rolling country ballads, as well as genre-benders in between. Complemented by thoughtful lyricism, the whole is a sound larger than the sum of its parts. Strong dedication to their craft and to one another has quickly made Scratchdog Stringband one of the hardest working acts in the Northwest, both on and off of the stage. Since their formation in January 2015, Scratchdog has performed over 150 shows and averaged one hundred sales a month of their EP, ‘Introducing Scratchdog Stringband.’”

The Divided Sky is located near the intersection of Navahoe Drive and U.S. Highway 50 in Meyers.
