After catching everyone's attention with her engaging performance in Once (and subsequently winning an Oscar for Best Original Song), Markéta Irglová parlayed that success into a short but distinguished run with the Frames frontman (and her Once co-star) Glen Hansard in the Swell Season. Now Irglová has set out on her own, and comes back to Minneapolis in support of her just-released debut solo record, Anar. Her new tunes are tender, piano-laden numbers that smartly focus on Irglová's warm, pure vocals, and should sound glorious within the intimate confines of the Cedar. Whether Irglová will dig into her acclaimed back catalog for this performance is anyone's guess, but with a strong new batch of her own songs to choose from and a voice as gorgeous as hers, there's no doubt the show will be stunning.
