Iron and Wine

Part of the Gallivan Center Twilight Series. Iron and Wine is the stage name for Sam Beam, a Florida native whose lo-fi demos caught the attention of Sub Pop honcho Jonathan Poneman. Beam’s first studio album, ‘Our Endless Numbered Days,’ garnered great press and considerable exposure through 2004, with music appearing in such films as ‘Garden State’ and ‘In Good Company.’
