CELEBRATE BROOKLYN! @ Prospect Park Bandshell
Gates open at 6:30pm
The Swell Season
The Low Anthem
Glen Hansard, of the great Irish band The Frames, and classically trained Czech pianist and singer Marketa Irglova won an Oscar with Falling Slowly, from the Once soundtrack, a film they also starred in. As The Swell Season they’ve gone on to globe-conquering success; their sophomore album Strict Joy delivers “hot Irish soul…energetic folk rock and dream-pop-touched balladry." (Rolling Stone) The gospel-tinged Americana of The Low Anthem, warm and inviting as the sunset, ushers in the night.
