Tuesday, April 14th, CMA New Artist of the Year Brett Eldredge will be performing at the University of Wyoming. The event will take place in the Arts & Sciences Auditorium at 8:00pm, with doors opening at 7:00pm. This show is closed to only University of Wyoming students, faculty, staff, and their guests. Tickets will be available for purchase starting Monday, March 9th for $20 with a valid WyoOne ID.  Tickets are available at the Wyoming Union Information Desk, Fine Arts Box Office, or online at www.uwyo.edu/finearts.

Surprisingly, Eldredge grew up in a family where musical talent was far and wide. Rather than learning from his parents, the Illinois native listened to the “big voices” of Ray Charles, Ronnie Dunn, and Frank Sinatra.  Eldredge soon began performing backyard concerts which grew into local performances around his town of Paris, IL where he found his love for the crowd and performing. Eldredge has since become a country superstar opening for some of the biggest names in country music including Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, and Taylor Swift.  Eldredge says being on stage is “the place I feel more alive than anywhere.” It is clear his off-stage relationship with his fans is strong too. Describing himself as a “goofball,” Eldredge operates a more than amusing Twitter account as well as webisodes known as “The Couch Series” where he performs covers and new songs. With hits like “Don’t Ya” and “Mean to Me” on his debut album “Bring You Back” and the American Country Countdown Awards “Song of the Year” of for “Beat of the Music,” Eldredge has established himself as a force to be reckoned with for years to come.

The event is produced by Concerts & Convocations and co-sponsored by the Student Activities Council.

Friday, May 1st singer-songwriter Iron & Wine will be performing at the University of Wyoming with special guest Gregory Alan Isakov for a unique solo acoustic experience. The event will take place in the Arts & Sciences Auditorium at 8:00pm, with doors opening at 7:00pm. Student tickets will be available starting Monday, March 9th for $20 with a valid WyoOne ID. Public tickets will be available starting Monday, March 16th for $30. Tickets are available at the Wyoming Union Information Desk, Fine Arts Box Office, or online at www.uwyo.edu/finearts.

Iron & Wine’s Archive Series Volume No. 1 is the first in a series of releases pulled from tapes found in the back corners of closets and dusty shoe boxes – long neglected, but never forgotten. Sam Beam has been creating music as Iron & Wine for more than a decade, and with the Archive Series, he will be gathering otherwise unreleased home recordings, covers, and live sets, from his entire career and releasing them on his own label, Black Cricket Recording Co. The first chapter in the Archive Series has been digitally transferred from the original cassettes and packaged in gatefold artwork featuring the Bird of Paradise Quilt (licensed from the American Folk Art Museum). Iron & Wine’s Archive Series Volume No. 1 is now out. Beam chose the nickname Iron & Wine after coming across a dietary supplement named "Beef Iron & Wine" while working on a film. Iron & Wine will also be headlining at prestigious Red Rocks Amphitheatre this summer.

Opening for Iron & Wine is Gregory Alan Isakov who will be returning to the University of Wyoming after his sold out performance last April. Isakvov’s lyrical masterpieces are sure to compliment the musical styling of Iron & Wine.
