Yarn brings Alt-Country sound to Rives at 9 p.m. this weekend

25 Sep


Brooklyn-based band Yarn will bring their signature Americana/Alt-Country sound to the Rives Theatre on Saturday, September 29, as part of Arts at the Rives Theatre’s “Live at the Rives” concert series.

Since their start in 2007, Yarn’s original Americana sound has developed into music that seekers of the unique see as the soundtrack to their lives. Yarn’s first four albums were recognized by the AMA’s and R&R radio charts, spending time in the top 5 at their highest point. Yarn has become one of the hardest-working and harder-touring bands for this generation’s digital natives and new music folllowers.

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 music alike, with technically impressive song-crafting and universal tales from the road of life.

In March, Yarn released their newest album, Almost Home, produced by the multi-Grammy winning, Bil VornDick, who has worked with Alison Krauss, Ralph Stanley, Bob Dylan and many others. VornDick came across a Yarn performance at “Music City Roots,” Nashville’s progessive live music show that showcases some of the best of the Americana music scene.

Yarn’s devoted family, affectionately know as the “Yarmy,” has the band following in the fine tradition of The Grateful Dead and Widespread Panic, whose fans will go to any length to see them live, and this year Yarn’s fans will see them plenty. Their rigorous tour schedule has them out on the road for more than 150 dates per year since 2007 and they are not slowing down.

Yarn’s concert at the Rives Theatre will begin at 9 pm. Tickets are $8 in advance at Studio 107 and Woodall’s Music and Sound or $10 at the door the night of the show. Theatre doors open one hour before the show begins.
