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.
Upcoming Wednesday night concerts in Lake George’s Shepard Park include Americana/pop singer-songwriter Eilen Jewel on July 22 and extraordinary blues singer-guitarist Sue Foley and her band on August 5.
