Backing Glen Hansard at Vicar St

So December 2017 brought us a brilliant experience in getting to back Glen Hansard at his two live shows in Vicar St. The way the gig came about was random and we had two weeks to prepare to back him on seven songs. It was an absolute pleasure for us and two nights we’ll never forget. Here’s Winning Streak:
