Marketa Irglova and Glen Hansard are reuniting this spring to hit stages on the East coast for the first time in more than 10 years.
The pair came to prominence starring in the 2007 film "Once" and winning the Academy Award for Best Original Song with their composition “Falling Slowly” in 2008. Their collaboration continued as The Swell Season, who released the album "Strict Joy" in 2009 via ANTI-. The two branched out into solo careers in 2011.
The two have remained in regular contact making the odd appearance on each other’s records or on stages randomly whenever paths would cross.
Irglova has released three long-form singles in the last two years - “Mother”, ”Among the Living” and ”Quintessence” – and has a new full length album planned for 2022. She just released a video/short film for the song “Among the Living,” which was filmed in and around her home in Iceland.
Hansard most recently collaborated with Cat Power and Eddie Vedder on the soundtrack for the film "Flag Day," released in August. Hansard is also preparing new music for 2022.

March 11 – Minneapolis, MN - State Theater
March 12 – Chicago, IL - Cadillac Palace Theatre
March 14 – Philadelphia, PA – Kimmel Cultural Campus
March 15 – Boston, MA - Emerson Theatre
March 17 - New York, NY - Beacon Theatre
