    Watch: Iron and Wine, Calexico Perform "Fairytale of New York" on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"

    Iron and Wine was the musical guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on NBC last night. Singer-songwriter Sam Beam was joined by the band Calexico along with special guests Glenn Hansard and Kathleen Edwards to perform that Christmas classic by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl, "Fairytale of New York," to help celebrate the holidays with Fallon. You can watch the performance here:

    All of the artists above, as well as Beth Orton, Nick Lowe, and Amos Lee, had performed the previous night at the Beacon Theater in New York for the ninth annual Holiday Cheer for FUV concert to benefit New York public radio station 90.7 FM WFUV. Tune in for more holiday cheer as WFUV airs highlights from the concert on Monday, December 23, at noon EST and on Christmas Day at 7:30 PM.

    "Mr. Beam sang, in his gentle high tenor, about memories and connections, families and lovers," writes New York Times music critic Jon Pareles in his review of the concert. "His songs, at their core, are folky ballads that mingle storytelling with more abstruse thoughts. But he has embellished them in various ways through the years: with folk-rock, country, jazz, even a little R&B." Read the complete review at nytimes.com.

    Iron and Wine's Nonesuch Records debut album, Ghost on Ghost, is among the year-end favorites of NPR listeners and a number of NPR stations, as listed on Heavy Rotation: Public Radio's Songs of 2013. Both WFUV and World Cafe include the album track "Grace for Saints and Ramblers," and KUTX has "Low Light Buddy of Mine." To pick up a copy of the album, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout and are now 35% off the standard retail price (about 20% off the everyday low prices listed on the site) as part of the current Nonesuch Store anniversary sale.
