    Iron & Wine to Headline Holiday Cheer for FUV Benefit Concert at Beacon Theatre December 10

    The ninth annual Holiday Cheer for FUV concert will bring an evening of collaboration to the Beacon Theatre: Iron & Wine and Friends, featuring Tucson-based Calexico as house band for a one-time evening of song and camaraderie. The show will take place Tuesday, December 10, at 8 PM and will benefit New York public radio station 90.7 FM WFUV. Joining them will be songwriter/performer Nick Lowe, plus other artists to be announced.

    Tickets are priced from $40 - $375 and go on sale through Ticketmaster on Friday, October 18, at 12 noon.

    "Iron & Wine's Sam Beam sets a really high bar artistically," said WFUV Program Director Rita Houston. "The idea of bringing him together with other artists he admires appealed both to him and to us. We expect some creative sparks to fly and for the audience to hear some familiar songs in new ways. It should be a night of music discovery for everyone."

    Sam Beam has performed as Iron & Wine for more than 10 years. The fifth Iron & Wine album, Ghost on Ghost, released earlier this year on Nonesuch Records, received critical acclaim for its synthesis of soaring melodies and jazz rhythms, and, says FUV, is one of the station's favorite albums of the year.

    To pick up a copy of Ghost on Ghost, head to iTunes or the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout.
