Celebrated Irish Singer/Songwriter Glen Hansard To Perform

Celebrated Irish Singer/Songwriter Glen Hansard to Perform at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall

Thursday, February 5, 2015

Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.  — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall is proud to announce an intimate evening of career-spanning songs and stories from singer/songwriter Glen Hansard (of Once and The Swell Season) will take place on Thursday, February 5, 2015. Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, November 7 at 10 a.m.

glenhansardpressGlen Hansard is renowned for his work as the songwriter behind Once, the musical and the movie, which has garnered its fair share of awards. The highly lauded play Once, The Musical won eight Tony Awards including best direction of a musical, best lead actor in a musical and the top musical prize itself. Once, The Musical is based on the feature film Once, with original songs written by Hansard including “Falling Slowly” for which he won an Academy Award.

Hansard is also known for his work as principal songwriter and vocalist/guitarist for the Irish group, The Frames, who have established themselves as one of the most influential bands in Ireland. Hansard garnered a reputation as not only an unparalleled front man, but also for his dedicated following and his grounded, real-life songs. In addition to The Frames, Hansard is also one half of the acclaimed duo The Swell Season. In 2007, he and Czech songstress Marketa Irglova took home the Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Falling Slowly” off the Once soundtrack. Hansard and Irglova continued the success of Once with the 2009 release Strict Joy under then namesake of The Swell Season. Recently, Hansard released his first ever solo album, Rhythm & Repose, which Magnet Magazine said “has given him a deeper, haunting sense of quiet that strips these melodies to their essential, fragile beauty, delivered with joy, grace, and a wounded wisdom.”

Hansard’s Winter Tour will feature a string of uncharacteristically intimate North American dates this February including a stopover at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on February 5. Hansard will be performing songs from throughout his career including his latest release, Rhythm & Repose, and he will be joined on this run of shows by the Rhythm & Repose wrecking crew consisting of bass player Brad Albetta (Martha and Rufus Wainwright), keyboardist Thomas Bartlett (Doveman, The National) and Rob Moose (yMusic Ensemble, Bon Iver) on strings.

Tickets for this general admission standing room only show go on sale this Friday, November 7 at 10 a.m. Tickets will be available for purchase at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall and St. Augustine Amphitheatre Box Offices, ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets and by phone at (800) 745-3000.

Mythica Post: Are You All Alone?

Recently I made a discovery that the reason it feels that I have been swimming against the current all by myself trying to figure out what’s wrong is because I am in a vast sea of people who are all around me thinking the same thing. Haven’t you felt it too? Some strange inertia holding you back from that next realization that will give you the breakthrough financially? in your relationship, in your self worth and value? in meaningful work? … [Read More its Good For You...]

Witt Of Will & The Daily Scream Colorado is at an all time HIGH, literally! Recently I was speaking and doing my rope spinning act for folks in Colorado and then politicians in Washington, DC.
