Irish folk singer-songwriter Glen Hansard has been breaking hearts since 2007 when he starred alongside former bandmate Markéta Irglová in the romantic musical drama Once, for which he won an Oscar for best original song. Ten years later and Hansard is flying solo with his third record Between Two Shores, which showcases a sweet balladeer with a devastating penchant for delivering harsh truths. Calling to mind Cat Stevens meets The Proclaimers, Hansard confronts the matters of the heart with nothing more than an acoustic guitar and a healthy dose of longing.

Glen Hansard will perform on Tuesday, March 20 at the Royal Oak Music Theatre; Doors open at 7 p.m., 318 W. Fourth St., Royal Oak; 248-399-2980; royaloakmusictheatre.com; Tickets are $29.50-$55.
