Glen Hansard, Richard Thompson

When: Fri., Nov. 27, 8 p.m. 2015

Glen Hansard first appeared as a musician onscreen in 1991’s The Commitments, a charming indie hit about an unlikely soul band in working-class Dublin. He made a bigger impression as a romantic lead in the naturalistic 2007 musical Once, winning a “best original song” Oscar for a ballad he brought to the production. Hansard was a real-life troubadour throughout, first in well-regarded ’90s folk-rock experimenters The Frames and then with Once co-star Markéta Irglová as The Swell Season. He’s now a seasoned performer and stage-banter raconteur with a faithful fan base. His arrival sets up Once’s live run in Raleigh, which begins Dec. 1. The legendary and always delightful Richard Thompson opens. —Jeff Klingman
