Marketa Irglova – Unitarian Church – 15-11-14

Markéta-Irglová

What is it about gigs in Churches that always gets me excited? I guess it’s the novelty value, as I don’t spend much time there otherwise!

Marketa Irglova is the non Glen Hansard half of the Swell Season, and she returns with her second solo album for you to enjoy. She plays the Unitarian Church on November 15th with tickets at €20.

Oscar-winning Czech songwriter and member of The Swell Season Marketa Irglova has announced details of her new album and a rare Irish concert in November.

Her second album Muna will be released on Anti/Plateau on September 19th in Ireland.

‘MUNA’ is the second solo record by Marketa Irglova. It is a collection of 11 songs written over the course of a year and recorded in several sessions over 6 months. 27 musicians and vocalists participated in the performance of these songs, among them Rob Bochnik from the Swell Season/The Frames, an Iranian daf player and vocalist, Aida Shahghasemi and Shazhad Ismaily, Una Sveinbjarnardøttir and Zuzana Irglova.

‘Muna’ means to remember in Icelandic and was chosen as a title for this album since remembering that which has been forgotten is a running thread throughout this record. Muna was recorded, mixed, mastered and produced in Iceland by Sturla Mio Thorisson.

Irglova is a Czech singer-songwriter, musician and actress. She won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Falling Slowly” at the 80th ceremony, which was co-written with Glen Hansard.
