Live From the Artists Den

The Swell Season

Season 1, Episode 8 of 13

The Swell Season is a musical project fronted by Irish singer-songwriter Glen Hansard (of popular rock band The Frames) and Czech singer and pianist Marketa Irglová. The duo is best known for their breakthrough lead roles in the hit indie musical Once, which won them an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2008. Built in 1906 as a shelter for young wayward or orphaned girls, the Good Shepherd Center Chapel in Seattle provided a new sort of haven for 200 Artists Den guests on a crisp autumn night. Now a Historic Seattle landmark and performance space, the intimate chapel is framed by high wooden arches, which were lit by candlelight while the latest incarnation of The Swell Season - Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglová, backed by two of Hansard's band mates from The Frames on bass and violin - gave a special performance of their melodic, original songs.
