LIVE: Yarn @ Shepard Park, 7/8/09

July 10th, 2009, 2:44 pm by Greg

Led by Blake Christiana, the Brooklyn-based country-bluegrass-folk combo Yarn began life as an off-shoot of the electric band Blake & the Family Dog.

Yarn has taken on a life of its own, however, frequently returning to the Capital Region – Christiana and fellow guitarist Trevor MacArthur are both Schenectady natives – for shows at Red Square, Caffe Lena and Saratoga First Night. On Wednesday, July 9, the band took over Shepard Park in Lake George.
