Eager to get started, George and Allie visit Renkins’ Farm to pick out the perfect pumpkin. There, they are told the spooky tale of the Legend of No Noggin. As the story goes, No Noggin is a hat-kicking scarecrow who appears on Halloween to kick people’s hats off. On Halloween night, George and Allie are determined to get a picture of No Noggin and prove he’s real once and for all. Will they be able to get the proof? Only the curious will find out!
Since the 2002 release of his intimate debut album, The Creek Drank The Cradle, Sam Beam — who records and performs under the name Iron and Wine — has established himself as one of the preeminent storytellers in music. His 2004 sophomore album, Our Endless Numbered Days, was a critical success and led to a busy 2005, in which Beam released two EPs (including one with fellow Artists Den alums Calexico). In 2007, The Shepherd’s Dog was in the Top Ten of Paste Magazine’s list of the year’s 100 best albums. January 2011 saw the release of Iron and Wine’s fourth album, Kiss Each Other Clean. The effort is Beam’s first with Warner Bros Records, and continues Iron and Wine’s evolution from its lo-fi roots to an expanded sound, featuring a full seven-piece band accompanying Beam’s signature understated vocals.
