Glen Hansard Calls His Ma [Come On Up To The House]


A tear-jerker scene from the musical feature ‘Come On Up To The House’, in which the audience attending a Glen Hansard concert, sitting in a circus tent on the edge of a cliff in Kerry, persuade him to call his mother.
[Full documentary available to view on all Arbutus Yarns socials] ‘The tent was huge. It could fit hundreds of people. Some in the village didn’t want it there. Objections were raised. After all, in the most remote and westerly part of Ireland, local people lived a quiet life. Who were this circus crowd, bringing with them dozens of musicians, poets and actors? Why did they want to pitch their tent in Ballinabuck, population 105? Who’s idea was that? This is the story of when Footsbarn Theatre Company came to the Dingle Peninsula, eventually finding a field to pitch their tent and stage several nights of shows with some of Ireland’s most well known musicians and performers. Featuring live music from Ye Vagabonds, Lisa O’Neill, Cormac Begley, Glen Hansard, Liam Ó Maonlai, Swell Season, Mongoose, Interference, Stephen James Smith and many more.’
