Friday, March 28, 7:30 p.m. Egan Center

The UAA Concert Board is proud to present Iron & Wine. With the release of "The Creek Drank the Cradle" in 2002, Iron & Wine joined the forefront of a small group of indie-folk musicians who would redefine the music scene over the next decade. That, however, has not prevented Sam Beam-the man behind Iron & Wine- from redefining his own sound over the course of his career. Beginning with 2007's "The Shepard's Dog," Beam introduced full band compositions, which provided room for variety and playfulness. Praising his ability to adapt and challenge himself, NPR called Beam "a songwriter versatile enough to pack huge ideas into simple arrangements and vice versa." Of Beam's latest effort, 2013's "Ghost on Ghost,"Rolling Stone said, "The best tunes here are the kind of dreams that will stay on your mind long after waking."
