Des Moines, Iowa (September 25, 2013) Historic Hoyt Sherman Place was host to Iron and Wine with supporting artists Widowspeak. Widowspeak served as a gentle, sometimes intense, lead into Iron and Wine with their Margo Timmins influenced vocals and Nels Cline style guitar breaks.  Iron and Wine, Sam Beam, has recently done solo shows but withe the release of Ghost on Ghost he has toured with a full ensemble of horns, strings, backing vocalists, key, drums and bass.  Sam’s voice and guitar playing was tailor made for Hoyt Sherman’s superb acoustics, which he commented on frequently.  This was my first show at Hoyt Sherman as a photographer and was in awe of its beauty which was amplified by Iron and Wine with Widowspeak.
