Due to Hurricane Sandy, Yarn is stuck in New York City, and will be unable to make it to Charlottesville this week.
Before their concert at the Southern in Charlottesville on November 1, festival favorites Yarn will stop by Folk & Beyond for some live music and conversation. Later in the same show, their opening act, James Justin & Co will do the same.
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.
