Jet-set hansard proves his commitment to gigs
IT'S been a busy week for Oscar-winner Glen Hansard, writes Fiona Ellis.
The singer-songwriter crossed the country several times and the Atlantic ocean twice this week to perform in a series of gigs.
On Monday, he played with the newly reformed Commitments in the Royal Theatre, Castlebar, Co Mayo. Hansard played 'Outspan' in the 1991 film.
Hansard then rushed to the White House's St Patrick's Day reception in Washington, where he performed as part of the celebrations.
He then caught a plane back to Ireland to play at the O2 tonight with the Commitments again.
