The Dubliner finished the US wing of his Didn't He Ramble tour last night at the Big Apple.
The older sister to Radio City Music Hall, New York City's Beacon Theatre is the scene of the final night of Glen Hansard's ‘Didn't He Ramble’ US tour. Having bussed his way from coast to coast, nobody's disputing the veracity of the title.
Opening tonight is the magnificent August Wells. Some will remember Ken Griffin from his previous life with Rollerskate Skinny, one of Ireland's more original and exciting acts in the 90s.
August Wells sees Griffin and his band of far-from-merry men in total control of their craft. Often performing in some of the Lower East Side’s venues as a duo with piano player John Rauchenberger, tonight the band features brass, strings, drum and bass. At times sounding like a darker, funnier Cohen, Griffin is a remarkable writer. The songs are simultaneously grand and polished; broken and sad.
