Dublin's National Concert Hall usually pulls in some big names for its Summer Series gigs, and this year is no exception.

Frames and Swell Season man Glen Hansard will join Interference on July 18th to mark the release of the new documentary 'Breaking Out', which is about the Cork band's late frontman Fergus O'Farrell.

South African choral icons Ladysmith Black Mambazo, meanwhile, will play the Hall on June 27th, where they will celebrate the life of founding member Joseph Shabalala, who recently passed away.

And finally, Portuguese fado star Mariza will bring her 20th anniversary tour to the Concert Hall on July 23rd.

Tickets for all dates are on sale this Friday, March 6th at 10am from www.nch.ie.
