Iron and Wine Heads Up Old Town School Benefit

A bold but beautiful storyteller
A bold but beautiful storyteller

You've heard Iron and Wine's penetrating vocals and gentle guitar on covers like 'Such Great Heights' (Postal Service) in the film Garden State, 'Flightless American Bird, American Mouth' in Twilight and on major American television programs The L Word, House M.D. and Grey's Anatomy. True to his creative, global spirit, the celebrated performer brought a vibrant Spanish style oeuvre to 'Boy With A Coin'. 2011's Kiss Each Other Clean established the South Carolina native as a versatile songwriter capable of deeply sensitive narrative and balanced dynamics.

His fifth album Ghost on Ghost was produced by Brian Deck. The groundbreaking release illustrates Sam Beam's natural rhythmic gifts via the likes of 'Grace for Saints and Ramblers'. Tracks are enhanced by Rob Burger's inventive string and horn arrangements. Iron and Wine's upbeat hooks and lively vocals make this album a must-hear.

Iron and Wine starts off the new year with an ambitious world tour, which includes a benefit performance at Old Town School of Folk Music. He'll be joined by the jazz master Charlie Haden's daughters, The Haden Triplets, known for their heavenly harmonies. Stay tuned for a memorable night.
