is a small indie movie with a lot of heart that also produced some wonderful music. Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová team up to both act and produce the soundtrack for the story of two people trying to make a life in Dublin.
Fortunately for us their collaboration did not end with the movie. The duo went on to produce a second album – The Swell Season
– and toured under the band name the Swell Season (including a stop at Colorado’s own Telluride Bluegrass Festival). This spring a DVD
, also titled The Swell Season
, is set to be released with the story of their 2 year tour and how – for better and worse – the fame and tour affected this talented duo.
Markéta Irglová has release her own album – Anra
. And Glen Hansard is a member of the Frames
, a band that has released several albums.
