This Grammy-Nominated Americana/Alt-Country band'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 music alike.

They craft seamless, flowing tunes that feel unfettered by time or trends: there's a purity and grace about them. Purveyors of some of the most reverent country/folk story songs you're likely to hear, their emotive story-telling compliments the sextet's sound, which straddles the genres of Americana and alt-country, with a dash of jam-band.

Blake Christiana has a folksy voice that is tough yet tuneful and a very comfortable listen, and Andrew Hendryx is one of the meanest mandolin players this side of Nashville. Trevor MacArthur, Rick Bugel and Jay Frederick round out one of the tightest and more vibrant bands we've heard in some time.
