Singer-songwriter Sam Beam has been releasing indie folk records under the name Iron & Wine for over a decade. With his newest release, Archive Series Volume No. 1, Beam's going back to basics with bedroom folk melodies and down-home whispers. We talk about his music, his new short film, "Dreamers and Makers are My Favorite People" (which features footage from his 2014 stop at the Jerry Run Summer Theater in West Virginia) and, of course, his infamous beard. 

Sam Beam (Iron & Wine) released Archive Series Volume No. 1 this past week. For more artist chats (and even some ticket giveaways), make sure to follow 'A Change of Tune' on FacebookTwitter and Insta. Hear more tunes from Beam on 'A Change of Tune,' airing Saturdays at 10pm EST on West Virginia Public Broadcasting.
