Tour: The Swell Season (Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova)

photos by David Cleary,www.myspace.com/davidclearyphotographyYou’ve seen Once by now, right? Surely, you’ve seen Once by now. The unassuming, low budget movie has been more successful for Glen Hansard’s career than the many years he’s spent leading The Frames. With any luck, Hansard’s newfound success will circle back around and The Frames back catalog will experience a resurgence in sales.

Hansard and his co-star/girlfriend Marketa Irglova will be performing their Oscar-nominated song “Falling Slowly” live during the Oscars on Sunday night backed by an orchestra. It should be nothing short of amazing and it would be a pretty safe bet to place money on “Falling Slowly” winning the Best Song Oscar.
