Poetry in Music
Heather Nova was raised on a sailboat, where she spent years sailing the Atlantic with her parents. She would sit at the bow of the ship and contemplate the endless sea and the freedom of the birds while she sang and played her guitar. This enrapture continues to influence her poetic songs. Glen Hansard won an Oscar for the music for the film «Once» and went on a world tour with his female partner as «The Swell Season». Then it all got to be too much and he retreated to New York for two years. Now this «most Irish of all Irish poets» has come back home as a seasoned singer-songwriter.
