‘Backyard Bop’ is Red Yarn’s sixth album for families & his first collection of all-original songs. After a 10-year journey through old American folk music, Red Yarn returns with a fresh set of rockabilly and folk-rock tunes about small towns, neighborhoods, and backyard adventures. Produced by GRAMMY-winner Dean Jones, ‘Backyard Bop’ provides the perfect soundtrack for family dance parties, summertime activism & play.
