And as happy as his fans will be to hear this, undeniably our favourite Glen Hansard story from the past while comes in the form of a busker in Dublin city.
A young man was singing a lovely rendition of Glen Hansard's Oscar-winning song 'Falling Slowly', from the movie Once.
He was belting the song out on King Street South in Dublin, when he was thrown a couple of quid by none other than Glen Hansard himself.
Hansard approaches Finnegan's guitar case during the chorus, which is when Finnegan briefly stops singing to say: "I don't believe it!", before carrying on with the song.
It was class.
