It’s shaping up to be a busy year for Yarn, which was featured on a recent segment of the CNN show “Erin Burnett Out Front” that showcased that band’s music and partnership with Firefly Vodka. Later this month, Yarn will make its first appearance at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, to play the New Frontier showcase. The performance coincides with the release of Yarn’s new record, produced by the legendary Bil VornDick, who has worked with Alison Krauss, Ralph Stanley, Bob Dylan and many others. His credits appear on No. 1 albums in five different musical genres.
