Glen Hansard – Live
Five years on from the Oscar win that earned him his deserved international acclaim, Frames frontman Glen Hansard continues his unending stream of live appearances.
It may be seven years since his last record with his much-loved Dublin band but he’s kept considerably busy since. The success of sleeper hit film Once paved the way for a second album with The Swell Season (Hansard’s collaboration with Once co-star and former lover Marketa Irglova), while last year saw the release of his first fully-fledged solo album, Rhythm and Repose.
It’s that record which should form the basis for much of these shows but also expect some Frames classics and the odd choice cover in the mix.
Keep an eye on The Irish Post for a review and some great photographs from his London show earlier this week
