Iron & Wine

SCOPE Productions has the pleasure of announcing that Iron & Wine will appear at the IMU Main Lounge on October 12th at 8:00 PM. Doors will open at 7:00 PM.

Rarely do singer songwriters create such an atmosphere that concertgoers are hushed into a tranquil vow of silence. In the case of Iron & Wine, Iowa City is lucky to welcome this soft-spoken maestro to the stage to calm minds and hearts alike. Iron & Wine’s sole luminary, Samuel Beam, writes songs as well as he creates stunning visuals and storylines for listeners to bob their heads to.

Samuel Beam is no young buck to the hierarchy of song craft, even before his 2002 debut release The Creek Drank The Cradle, Beam had been writing songs for seven years. Iron & Wine’s lyrics are ones of a seemingly different time and place; a pastoral exploration of the soul from the heart of Sam’s own bedroom. With songs like “Passing Afternoon”, “Boy With A Coin”, and his reinvention of the Postal Service’s “Such Great Heights”, fans and newcomers alike are sure to be entertained for hours on end.

A student only presale begins August 25th at the University Box Office, where students can UBILL up to 8 tickets. Tickets for the general public go on sale August 27th at the University Box Office and all Ticketmaster locations.

Persons with disabilities are encouraged to call (319) 335-3041 for special seating accommodations. For additional information regarding SCOPE Productions, please visit For press inquiries, contact Zachary Isom at (319) 213-1755 or HYPERLINK ""
