Yarn is coming to The Flash in Kennett Square on July 15.

The band, which consists of singer and songwriter Blake Christiana, bassist Rick Bugel, singer guitarist Rod Hohl, and drummer Bobby Bonhomme, began in Brooklyn, N.Y., before relocating to North Carolina. It has released five studio albums and averages 170 shows a year, according to a Flash press release.

Yarn has shared stages with such superstars as Dwight Yoakam, Charlie Daniels, Marty Stuart, Allison Krauss, and the Lumineers and played such venues as Mountain Stage, the Orange Peel in Asheville, N.C., and the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., performing in 32 states, the release said.

The group’s recognition includes Grammy nomination, nods from the Americana Music Association, and placement in the top five in both radio and album charts for the AMA, the release said. Boasting a local connection, the band’s single, "Shine the Light On," on its most recent release was co-written by John Oates of Hall & Oates fame.

Opening for Yarn will be Apache Trails, which features members of New Sweden and The Hold-Up, two of the more exciting young folk, bluegrass and blues bands this area has birthed in recent years, the release said.

Tickets – $20 in advance, $23 the day of the show – are available at www.kennettflash.org or www.ticketfly.com. Doors open at 7 p.m. for an 8 p.m. show. BYOB is permitted for $4 at the door (beer and wine only), and dinner service is available from La Verona. The Kennett Flash is located at 102 Sycamore Alley in Kennett Square.
