Sam Beam has had a banner year so far. The singer/songwriter who performs as Iron & Wine released Ghost On Ghost this year, and it might have been his best album yet. This December, he’s capping things off with a performance at the Beacon Theater as part of WFUV’s holiday festivities. Frequent Iron & Wine collaborators Calexico will be joining in on the fun, as will Glen Hansard, Beth Orton, Amos Lee, and the legendary Nick Lowe, but it’s Beam who we’re most excited for. When Iron & Wine is good (and according to our writer Joanna Hurley, Ghost On Ghost is them at their best), they can be absolutely transcendent. We can’t think of a better way to ring in the holidays.
