Acoustic bliss: Glen Hansard and Iron & Wine's Sam Beam perform together in L.A.

South Carolina and Ireland are literally an ocean apart, but Sam Beam (better known under his performing name Iron & Wine) and Glen Hansard of Once fame are closer than ever in their musical stylings. Friday night, a few select Angelenos were treated to a rare acoustic performance, complete with the pair taking requests from the audience, at the Sayers Club in Hollywood.

Hosted by public radio station KCRW, the night featured solo sets by both artists and a couple of covers that they played together at the end of the show. The two moody songsters share a manager and clearly have become quite close through that relationship, as they were joking with each other and the audience throughout the night.


Glen Hansard revisits hometown for 'High Hope' video: Watch it here -- EXCLUSIVE


Irish singer-songwriter Glen Hansard has had plenty of Stateside success — see exhibits A and B, for starters — but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten his roots.

For his solo song “High Hope,” the former Frames frontman and Once star returns to his hometown of Ballymun, Ireland, in a personal new video.

According to director Hedi Rose, the clip for the Rhythm and Repose track was “put together with recreated scenes of Glen’s memories and documentary footage” of the town “that formed and informed his childhood.” The video features Hansard singing to and along with the townsfolk, who seem more than happy to help their Local Kid Done Good with his project.

Check out the new Glen Hansard clip for “High Hope” in the video below:
