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. Much like its name, the band Yarn weaves country, rock, blues and more into a genre-defying blend that has captured the attention of fans and critics alike. 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.
Their self-titled debut record reached No. 14 on the AMA and R&R Radio Charts, and ranked No. 79 on the AMA’s Top 100 Albums of 2007
Yarn’s 2008 follow-up, EmptyPockets, spent months in the top 5 on the AMA chart & 8 First Round 2009 Grammy Nominations
Yarn’s third release, Come on In, held its own as the #25 record on the top 100 Americana chart of 2010.
Musicians from several different bands active in the Midwest region's vibrant original music scene come together to explore, emulate, and enjoy the music of The Dead's classic '69-'78 period. These players come from bands playing in nearly every musical genre- jazz, funk, country, prog-rock, blues, bluegrass, folk and rock n roll. When they take the stage together their influences, as disparate as they may seem, meld together beautifully to make music that can only be labeled as Grateful Dead music.
