They’re back again! ‘Once’ musicians plan to return to Korea in May
The Swell Season is coming back to town to perform song many Koreans fell in love with after watching the indie hit “Once” (2006).
Irish musician Glen Hansard and Czech pianist and singer Marketa Irglova will perform at the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts on May 15 to 16.
The concerts will mark their second trip to Korea this year. At their previous show, which sold out, the two stars sang tracks from the film soundtrack, including “Falling Slowly” and “When Your Mind’s Made Up.”
Their performance will be part of the Seoul Jazz Festival 2009, and tickets go on sale next Tuesday. For information, call (02) 563-0595.
