Glen Hansard

Different folks have had different introductions to redoubtable Irish tunesmith Glen Hansard: the movie “The Commitments”; the cool band the Frames; the movie-turned-Broadway musical “Once,”; the duo known as the Swell Season, or his own solo work. Hansard can be chattier than Billy Bragg or get carried away saluting his heroes with covers (Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen), but he’s a mesmerizing storyteller who once busked for charity with Bono on a Dublin street on Christmas Eve and delivers enthrallingly passionate, poetic folk-pop.
