For Your Consideration: The Swell Season

Last year we fell in love with the Swell Season. There’s a lot to love — the movie Once, from which they came, the way Glen Hansard spins a story on stage, his habit of playing his acoustic guitar at 800 mph, Marketa Irglova’s lovely pipes and humble stage presence, and the way their voices can fill a festival like it was an Irish pub. So to help you celebrate St. Patrick’s day, here’s three videos from their recent past.
