School of rock: Hansard strikes a chord with pupils

Valerie Loftus

students got a 'Once' in a lifetime chance to play with Glen Hansard, when The Frames frontman visited to help them raise their first An Taisce Green Flag.

The singer-songwriter came to St Tiernan's Community School in Dundrum, Dublin, after music teacher and Frames fanatic, Catherine Martin, invited him.

Hansard brought his guitar and performed The Frames' 'Fake' with student Balaji Block (15), above, and the school rock band. Hansard also performed his Oscar-winning song 'Falling Slowly' from the film 'Once'.

He was also delighted to give Ms Martin a thank-you hug for the invitation, right.
