The ninth annual Holiday Cheer for FUV concert will bring an evening of collaboration to the Beacon Theatre: Iron & Wine and Friends, featuring Tucson-based Calexico as house band for a one-time evening of song and camaraderie. The show will take place Tuesday, December 10, at 8 PM and will benefit New York public radio station 90.7 FM WFUV. Joining will be songwriter/performer Nick Lowe, plus other artists to be announced.
Tickets are priced from $40 - $375 and go on sale through Ticketmaster on Friday, October 18, at 12 noon.
"Iron & Wine's Sam Beam sets a really high bar artistically," said WFUV Program Director Rita Houston. "The idea of bringing him together with other artists he admires appealed both to him and to us. We expect some creative sparks to fly and for the audience to hear some familiar songs in new ways. It should be a night of music discovery for everyone."
