Czech singer/songwriter Markéta Irglová has returned to Iceland and will perform along with her band at KEX Hostel’s Gym&Tonic lounge next Wednesday April 4. You might remember Markéta from her 2010 NASA performance with The Swell Season, the band she runs alongside Glen Hansard, or from the motion picture ‘Once,’ where she starred next to the aforementioned Glen. Together they composed and sang the song “Falling Slowly”, which won the pair an Academy Award for Best Original song in 2008. Currently, she and Glenn are currently in the studio, working on The Swell Season’s fourth LP.
Only 120 tickets are available for the show, which promises to be an intimate, memorable affair (guests are welcome to bring pillows and blankets to enjoy the music sitting on the floor). Sales begin Thursday March 29 at www.midi.is at 10:00.
