Yarn to play at Pop’s Farm on Friday, Aug. 10

Rooster Walk Music and Arts Festival favorite Yarn  will perform on Friday, Aug. 10,  at Pop’s Farm just outside Martinsville, Virginia.

The Brooklyn-based Americana/alt-country band will hit the Pine Grove Stage at 9 p.m.

Fans are invited to camp, eat, drink and dance. Deschutes Brewery beer will be on tap, plus wine and food from Hylton’s Wood Fired Grill. Tickets are $15 advance and $20 at the gate, and camping is just $10 per vehicle.

Outside coolers, lawn chairs, blankets etc are OK, but outside alcohol is not permitted.

Buy Tickets HERE.

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.
