Sam Beam, better known by his stage name of Iron & Wine, visited the WFHB studios before playing a sold-out show at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. Over the last two Iron & Wine albums, Beam has expanded his sound with bigger arrangements, dabbling in jazz and R&B, and touring with a twelve-piece band. On this short tour, however, Iron & Wine is back to its roots—just Beam and his acoustic guitar, singing folk songs with gorgeous melodies and deceptively dark lyrics. We discussed his background as a filmmaker and professor, and how listeners take ownership of his songs. Why did he choose the name “Iron & Wine”? “Because Sam Beam sounds stupid.” Upon request, Beam performed “Joy,” “Upward Over the Mountain,” and “Love and Some Verses.”
