Glen Hansard was pulled into a chipper to sing on Stephen’s Night

This video is brilliant

This is brilliant.

On Christmas Eve, The Coronas, Hozier and Glen Hansard united for the annual busk just outside the Gaiety Theatre.

The street was filled with music as last minute shoppers stopped to enjoy the music.

However, that wasn’t enough for some.

While Glen Hansard was on a night out in Westmeath on Stephen’s Night, he couldn’t escape joining into a little singsong.

The singer went to get some late-night chips (as you do) while out in Kilbeggan, and bumped into musician Neil Moran who had a guitar on him (again, as you do).

The pair burst out in song, which was captured by May Maloney, singing Heyday and The Auld Triangle.

Apparently, the lads “stayed for ages,” and the video has more than 200,000 views.
