Hansard / Hungry Heart

Recommended Posts

Glen Hansard is one of the good ones. On Christmas Eve he annually organizes a busk on the street of Dublin to benefit Simons Community, a charity that benefits the homeless. This year folks like Bono, Damien Rice, Mundy, Lisa Hannijan and Liam O'Maonial, amongst others, showed up in support.

Eoin Glackin joined Glen in a cover of Hungry Heart:

A wonderful few hours spent on the windy streets of Dublin.

A belated Merry Christmas to all!

He was the DJ for the Christmas DJ spot on XM radio. He was fantastic, thank you my Irish brothers (& sisters) for such a wonderful talent.

If anyone has time check out Lisa Hannigan, she's really talented and has a super voice.

Agreed.

I had the chance to talk to Lisa for a bit after the busk, and she's also one of the sweetest people you could ever meet. That whole thing sort of restored my belief in the spirit of Christmas. It was pretty special.
