4 pm (est)

Before their concert at the Southern in Charlottesville this Friday, September 27, festival favorites Yarn will stop by WTJU at 4 pm (edt) for some live music and conversation.

Brooklyn-based Americana/Alt-Country band Yarn’s sound owes as much to Gram Parsons and Earl Scruggs as to Jerry Garcia and Exile On Main Street-era Rolling Stones. Following in a fine tradition that includes forward thinking roots bands like The Flying Burrito Brothers and New Riders of The Purple Sage, Yarn weaves roots music idioms into a fresh sound that turns on hipsters and fans of country m usic alike, with technically impressive song-crafting and universal tales from the road of life.  The band is currently touring behind its brand new release, Shine The Light On,
