In a welcome return to Belfast and to performing live, Glen Hansard is back for one night in the glorious surroundings of The Grand Opera House, exactly two years since his sell-out performances at BIAF19.
From his time as lead singer of Irish stalwarts The Frames, one half of folk rock duo The Swell Season, starring in the critically acclaimed, award-winning films The Commitments and Once through to his fourth solo album, This Wild Willing, an artist of Hansard’s stature needs no introduction.
This will be Glen’s first show in front of a live audience on the island of Ireland for what feels like a long time, and Belfast is the perfect location, given the success of his appearances at BIAF19; part of his last tour pre-covid.
We’ve missed Glen and he has missed his audiences. For anyone who hasn’t seen Hansard perform live, he channels absolutely everything into his performance. Don’t miss it!
Part of IN-visible ID-entities 3, an on-going BIAF initiative encouraging cultural collaboration across the island and supported by the Government of Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs.
Please note: this performance is subject to social distancing restrictions being lifted.
