Glen Hansard Tour 2019 ! Glen Hansard born 21 April 1970 is an Irish songwriter as well as an award winning actor. But he is more known for his acoustic folk music.
Glen first tackled the musical life when he started busking at just 13. He persevered with a musical dream but entered a different secret door to international fame. He took on an acting role to play a guitarist in The Commitments which no one would realize how big it would later become. The film won a BAFTA, became a cult classic and Glen was now a widely acclaimed individual on the scene. But he was determined to follow up a musical career and so his band The Frames produced many albums.
In 2006 Glen decided it was time to set aside from The Frames and pursue a solo career: the man was progressing effortlessly in the musical world. He covered a classic Bob Dylan song ‘You Ain’t Going Nowhere’ which was recorded for the 2007 film ‘I’m Not There.’ And like Dylan, Hansard took up the acoustic guitar and went down that route. However he interpreted traditional Irish routes to create a soulful cultural gorgeous acoustic sound mixed in with his soft voiced vocals, making Glen a renowned song writer and guitarist.
Now touring this year it seems Glen has had enough of the shadows and wants to step back into the spotlight.
