Yarn LIVE on Folk & Beyond, April 4



on Folk & Beyond

5 pm (est)


Before their concert at the Southern in Charlottesville on April 4, the lead singer of Yarn, Blake Christiana, will stop by Folk & Beyond 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.
