Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: The Swell Season Performs “Buzzin’ Fly”

The Swell Season’s Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, who starred in the 2007 film “Once,” perform Tim Buckley’s “Buzzin’ Fly” (original version and lyrics) in Seattle, October 2009. Toward the end, Hansard quotes from “Grace," a song by Tim's son Jeff Buckley, as a tribute; both Tim and Jeff passed away at a young age.

Accompanied by a solo acoustic guitar - it will never fill Madison Square Garden, but it may just be the purist form of musical performance.

Yet we remember a time when Bob Dylan; Peter, Paul and Mary; Phil Ochs, and Joan Baez could fill not just Folk City, but Carnegie, Philharmonic and Royal Albert Halls with just acoustic guitars and voices. Why is that no longer enough?
