Oscar-winner Glen Hansard returns for his traditional Christmastime shows at Vicar Street.
Oscar-winner Glen Hansard returns for his traditional Christmastime shows at Vicar Street. Unlike his intimate, seated shows of this summer, which were entirely acoustic affairs, these December performances will feature a full-band with all the bells and whistles, including regular sidemen saxophonist Michael Buckley and trombonist Curtis Fowlkes, as well as former writing partner and co-star of Once, Markéta Irglová, with whom Hansard won the Oscar.
As usual with Hansard’s hometown gigs, we can also expect an array of guests to appear each night on stage, either from his former band The Frames, or any number of Irish singer-songwriters who count Hansard as a inspiration.
