Upcoming Shows

Over the course of his career, Iron & Wine's Sam Beam has become one of today's greatest storytellers, crafting meticulous tales full of forlorn love, religious imagery and wistful dreams. Iron & Wine's annual benefit concert at the Paramount is an intimate, acoustic performance supporting the Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA), a professional organization for all midwives, whose goal is to unify and strengthen the profession of midwifery, thereby improving the quality of health care for women, babies, and communities. This year's concert is also focused on spreading awareness of Bumi Sehat Foundation International.

Iron and Wine’s Nonesuch Records debut, Ghost on Ghost, was released earlier this spring. It is the fifth release from singer-songwriter Sam Beam using the pen name Iron and Wine. The album was produced by Beam’s longtime associate Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Califone, Fruit Bats) and follows 2011’s Kiss Each Other CleanGhost on Ghost has received critical acclaim, with NPR Music calling Beam “a songwriter versatile enough to pack huge ideas into simple arrangements and vice versa.” Iron and Wine, who have been touring in support of Ghost on Ghost, have added additional dates for the fall, including shows in Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, and Portland. 

For the fifth year, Beam gives a special benefit performance on July 26 for the Midwife Alliance of North America

Helping achieve Beam’s vision for Ghost on Ghost was a group of stellar musicians including Rob Burger, Steve Bernstein, Brian Blade, Curtis Fowlkes, Tony Garnier, Marika Hughes, Briggan Kraus, Maxim Moston, Tony Scherr, Doug Wieselman, Kenny Wolleson and Anja Wood. Burger (Tin Hat Trio) has worked with Beam intermittently through the years and handled arrangements for strings and horns on Ghost on Ghost. For the album’s cover, Beam, who is also a visual artist, chose an image from the series Private Views by noted photographer Barbara Crane. 

A video for the album track“Joy” recently premiered on NPR.org as a “First Watch.” 

The first three Iron and Wine albums, released on Sub Pop, were The Creek Drank the Cradle (2002), Our Endless Numbered Days (2004), andThe Shepherd’s Dog (2007).
