Iron & Wine is excited to have Laura Mvula and Jesca Hoop on separate legs of the upcoming US tour. Laura Mvula will be supporting from Los Angeles to Seattle. Jesca Hoop joins the tour from Missoula to Atlanta.
Iron and Wine stopped by the studios of Minnesota Public Radio's 89.3 The Current while in Minneapolis to kick off the North American fall tour with a sold-out show at First Avenue. Sam Beam spoke with Current host Steve Seel about the new album, Ghost on Ghost, and performed solo takes on three songs off the album: "Caught in the Briars," "Grace for Saints and Ramblers," and "Winter Prayers." You can watch the performance of the latter two songs here and listen to the complete in-studio performance at thecurrent.org.
Iron and Wine will head to Australia in April 2014 to play the Byron Bay Bluesfest and shows in Melbourne and Sydney:
