Glen Hansard, Doug Paisley

When: Sat., June 15, 7:30 p.m. 2013

Glen Hansard's renown blossomed thanks to his indie band The Frames and especially his role in the Oscar-winning film Once, but his 2012 solo debut, Rhythm and Repose, suggests he'll bloom for some time. Between stirring acoustic ballads—all busker immediacy and blues ache—and full-bodied Van Morrison cool, the Irish songwriter arranges gallant sways and subtle twang to accompany his broken-in tenor. Don't miss his opening act: Though Doug Paisley doesn't share Hansard's spotlight, the Toronto folk-rock craftsman has plenty to offer with his elegant, elegiac songs. Understated and masterful, Paisley eschews shallow thrills for casual currency. —Bryan C. Reed
