The National Concert Hall’s Refractions series continues – with two new special events next month, featuring Martin Hayes (October 12) and Glen Hansard (October 28).
Acclaimed fiddler Martin Hayes is set to join Donal Dineen for a night of absorbing conversation to mark the publication of his memoir Shared Notes.
Later in the month, one of Ireland’s best-loved singer-songwriters, Glen Hansard returns to the Dublin stage for the first time since the pandemic, to make his NCH headline show debut. This concert will also be live-streamed globally.
“We are very excited to announce these two exceptional additions to our autumn series," says Robert Read, CEO of the National Concert Hall. "Martin Hayes and Glen Hansard are without a doubt two of the finest Irish artists working today. Martin Hayes, whether solo, with Dennis Cahill, The Gloaming or in another of his many guises is an outstanding exemplar of the Irish traditional form. As someone at the vanguard of the genre from an early age his memoir is the story of an important era in its evolution.
"Glen Hansard is an exceptional talent whose extraordinary song-writing has resonated deeply not only with Irish fans but also a huge international audience, he is the voice of a generation," he continues. "We are delighted to welcome Glen for his debut National Concert Hall headline show, which marks his return to the Dublin stage.”
