Close Video

Taken by the “If you build it, they will come” story of the Jerry Run Summer Theater, located in the remote Appalachian town of Cleveland, West Virginia, Grammy-nominated singer songwriter Sam Beam (who performs under the moniker Iron & Wine) felt the location was the perfect setting to film a concert in celebration of the release of the album 'Archive Series Volume No. 1.' The Archive Series is a collection of demos and never-before-released songs from the Iron and Wine vault. "Dreamers and Makers Are My Favorite People" captures this a batch of songs that had never been performed live, presented for the first time, in a tiny, out-of-the-way homemade theater, to an audience of fans and music lovers, many of whom had never heard of Iron & Wine. 'Dreamers and Makers are my Favorite People' looks back to Iron & Wine’s earliest moments and shares the story of the musical community fostered by Jerry Run Theater. Through live footage, interviews, and photos the viewer is treated to a rare glimpse into the past.
