Glen Hansard

This Wild Willing Tour

Wednesday, September 4 at 7:30 pm

State Theatre

Glen Hansard is an Irish songwriter, actor, vocalist and guitarist for Irish group The Frames, and one half of folk rock duo The Swell Season. He is also known for his acting, having appeared in the film The Commitments, as well as starring in (and writing the soundtrack for) the film Once.

His new album, This Wild Willing, marks an inflection point in his career, a turning where he marries the sonic inventiveness of the best of his work in The Frames to the discipline he’s found as a lyricist in his solo career. It is an album guided and formed by the twin totems of resolve and surrender — the resolve to see a thing through alongside a willingness to surrender, to trust in that which lies outside yourself — the other musicians in the room, your lover, your healer, your audience.

Glen Hansard is proud to partner with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket sold will go towards safeguarding people experiencing homelessness and ending the cycle of homelessness and poverty.

Ticket prices range from $40 to $65.
