Enjoy an intimate solo performance with Sam Beam, the singer-songwriter known better by his pen name Iron & Wine. Beam writes heartfelt and plaintive songs that connect with audiences the world over. Iron & Wine continually sells out large theaters on tour making this up close and personal solo concert in Old Town School's jewel box concert hall all the more special. The close-knit Americana harmony of The Haden Triplets opens the evening.
Ticket purchase includes a custom concert poster and a digital download of the evening's performance.
Iron & Wine singer-songwriter/mastermind Sam Beam crafts gorgeous indie folk that has connected with a large audience and taste making music critics alike. Rolling Stone writes “pop music hadn't seen anything like it since the heyday of Cat Stevens,” while Pitchfork said it “more closely resembles the lush, gold-toned singer songwriter records of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s - Astral Weeks, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.”
The Haden Triplets sing songs steeped in history and sung in a close harmony that could only be achieved from sharing a lifetime of sisterly togetherness and a near psychic vocal interplay that can only come from being born mere seconds apart from each other. They are the triplet daughters of famed jazz bassist, Charlie Haden. Their new album due out early next year on Jack White's Third Man Records, is an album expanding on an American musical tradition. It is not pastiche or a tribute, but rather a direct antecedent and extension of the original folk legacy that is being exhibited within these songs.
