Yarn is a roots/Americana band formed in Brooklyn and now in North Carolina. They've released five studio albums and have shared stages with such superstars as Dwight Yoakam, Charlie Daniels, Marty Stuart, Allison Krauss, Leon Russell, Jim Lauderdale, and The Lumineers.

Eric Lee emerged in the folk community as the virtuosic fiddle player of Pete & Maura Kennedy's fiery super-group, The Strangelings, after being plucked from the audience at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. He has since performed with such artists as Peter Rowan, John Gorka, and Dan Navarro, who, among others, have inspired his uniquely poetic and expressive songwriting.
