A Special Evening with Blake Christiana of Yarn
Blake Christiana is the founding member, singer, and songwriter for the band, Yarn. Thats certainly no small accomplishment, especially for a band that spent two years honing their chops during a Monday night residency at the famed Kennys Castaway in New Yorks Greenwich Village.
Six studio albums followed and the band then took to the road, playing upwards of 170 shows a year and sharing stages with such superstars as Dwight Yoakam, Charlie Daniels, Marty Stuart, Allison Krauss, Leon Russell, Jim Lauderdale and The Lumineers.
They performed at any number of prestigious venues -- Mountain Stage, Daytrotter, the Orange Peel in Asheville, the Fox Theater in Boulder, the 9:30 Club in D.C, South by Southwest, the Strawberry Festival, Rhythm and Roots, Meadowgrass and more, eventually accumulating over 1,000 shows, half a million miles and performances in nearly all 50 states.
As a solo artist, Blake shares his songs and stories in a very raw, stripped-down format. Just his voice and an acoustic guitar, often giving insight into the songs he is singing. Christianas songwriting influence is simply life.
I want to do songs everybody, rich, poor, young, old, everybody in between can relate to, he said. Im not a super intellectual writer. I write from feelings, emotions, and a lot of struggle. Whatever weve been born into and been blessed with, we all face the same struggles.
