Due to demand Glen Hansard will now be performing on Sunday 4 December in addition to his previously announced date on Saturday 3 December. The NCH is thrilled to announce these rare performances by Glen and his band – Joseph Doyle, Ruth O’Mahony Brady, Earl Harvin. These shows will introduce some new songs and reacquaint the audience with some old musical friends from Glens extensive back catalogue.
Glen is one of Ireland’s best-loved singer songwriters, his output over the last 30 years – whether solo, with The Frames, The Swell Season or in other guises – has brought joy to hearts at home and abroad. His exceptional talent has also garnered him numerous honours, including an Academy and Olivier Award and 8 Tonys. 2022 has seen him play to a home crowd of 15,000 fans for The Frames rescheduled 30th anniversary concert in the Royal Hospital Dublin. He was also nominated for a Guild of Music Supervisors Award for Best Song Written for Film with Eddie Vedder (with whom he regularly tours) for ‘My Father’s Daughter’ from Flag Day.
Glen is used to being in a constant state of motion – whether it be creatively or physically. Not being able to get out in front of real audiences during the pandemic was especially tough, but it gave him space and time to write. He has been quietly working away on new music with his current band mates Joseph Doyle (bass), Earl Harvin (drums) and Ruth O’Mahony Brady (keyboards). The fruits of their labours should see the light of day in 2023. Glen is very much looking forward to getting back to the stage where he is most at home.
