A double dose of music at Vino Di Sedona starts with Saturday Wine Tasting on March 17 accompanied by music by Rob DeFriese from 3:30 to 6 p.m. Rob is a professional singer/songwriter and an Arizona native based in Phoenix. As a solo, acoustic act, he plays his own, original songs as well as a wide variety of rock, pop, and alternative hits from the 60s to today.

It’s Sunday-funday with music by folk trio Yarrow at Vino Di Sedona March 18 from 5-8 p.m. Yarrow was formed in 2011 when three musicians, Patty and Tom Hoisch and Patricia Fonseca, shared a desire to push the boundaries of the familiar. Recognizing how diversity in their backgrounds could allow their collaboration to become larger than the sum of its parts, they began to cross folk and rock music with classical music and poetry. The result is a continually evolving mix of electric cello, acoustic guitar, djembe, harmonized vocals and poetic lyrics in the Indie genre, offering many original songs and a few familiar favorites with unexpected twists.

Music has always been essential to Patricia Fonseca. She has a long history of singing and a rich imagination. Patricia brings her clear voice, instinctive harmonies, and percussion to the trio. Her literary background and poetic heart manifest in profoundly illustrative lyrics.

Music Monday at Vino Di Sedona features 2017 Northern Arizona Blues Challenge winner D.L. Harrison. D.L. is an Arizona singer-songwriter who delivers a high-energy rock and blues show.

Sedona’s best Open Mic night, hosted by Dan Rice, is every Tuesday, 6-10 p.m. at Vino Di Sedona.
