The Auckland Arts Festival 2013 welcomes two of Irish contemporary music’s brightest stars, Glen Hansard and Lisa Hannigan, to Auckland Town Hall in a rare, one-night-only show as part of the Festival’s diverse music programme.

The captivating Oscar-winning Frames front man and more recently one half of the Swell Season duo, Glen Hansard, will be performing songs from his debut solo release - the acclaimed Rhythm and Repose - which is his first album of new material since the 2009 release Strict Joy with The Swell Season. Long time fans will also be thrilled to know Hansard’s main band, The Frames, will be his backing group for this tour. Hansard and The Frames last visited NZ in 2007 when they supported Bob Dylan on his international tour.

In the last year, Hansard has featured in the highly regarded new festival circuit documentary The Swell Season (about the making of Once), contributed two songs to the global blockbuster film soundtrack, The Hunger Games; a song titled The Gift for the upcoming Disney fantasy film The Odd Life of Timothy Green; and played a number of solo concerts alongside Eddie Vedder to rave reviews.

This tour’s special guest is delightful Irish singer Lisa Hannigan. Hannigan gained her initial prominence through a six-year collaboration with Damien Rice. Her first solo album, Sea Sew, was nominated for the Mercury Prize in 2008, while Passenger, her 2011 follow-up, has received four and five-star reviews across the UK.
