An Evening with Iron & Wine

Buy Tickets

“Sam Beam, Iron & Wine’s eternally bearded songwriter, is responsible for some of his generation’s most affecting records.” Rolling Stone

The last decade has seen Sam Beam, under the stage name Iron & Wine, become a bona fide superstar in indie circles. The release of his debut album, The Creek Drank the Cradle, heralded the arrival of a strikingly original vocal talent with hushed tones backed by sparse instrumentation. Since then, Beam has expanded his sound to include electronic instruments and rich, lush textures. His recent album, Love Letter for Fire, written with singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop, veers from introspective folk to disparate pop. Beam returns to the unforgettable lo-fi sound of his beginnings in this intimate solo-acoustic performance.
