“... sincerity, compassion and conviction ... tied at the hip to his craft, Hansard delivered an engaging graduate-level course in the art of being a master singer-songwriter.” Chicago Tribune

It's true. Just listen to anything Glen Hansard has recorded in the past 25 years, whether his solo records, with his band The Frames, or the songs he wrote with Czech musician Markéta Irglová for the film Once (from which their song Falling Slowly went on to win the Oscar for Best Original Song). It’s not just the voice of a master singer-songwriter you’re hearing – it’s his soul.

Born in a less than salubrious northside suburb of Dublin, Hansard’s early passion for music literally spilled out into the streets when he quit school at 13 to live the life of the busker, a life to which even now he’ll occasionally return.

A truly transformative experience, Glen Hansard’s Didn’t He Ramble Australian Tour will include a ten-piece band including piano, strings and a brass section. Hansard’s voice sweeps from a whisper to a defiant roar one moment, from heartache to celebration the next and taking his audiences along with him.

Don’t miss this very special one night only concert performance.
