I don’t know about you, but I was cheering Sunday night when Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova made their way to the stage to accept their Academy Award for “Falling Slowly” their Oscar nominated song from the independent film Once. The two talented songwriters also starred in the film, which was a highlight of my movie experiences in 2007. Just goes to show fairytales do come true! If you haven’t seen the movie about a chance meeting between a street musician and immigrant from the Czech Republic who bond over their shared love of music, get yourself to the video store! Highly recommended…and I’ll see you May 12th at the Brown Theater when the two come to Louisville with their band, The Swell Season. Tickets go on sale this Friday!
Watch Glen and Marketa perform at the Oscars
