SCHITT’S Creek star Noah Reid described a “wild” night in which he watched Glen Hansard perform an intimate performance in Dublin a few years ago.
The award-winning Canadian actor, 33, described the Falling Slowly singer as a “great performer” after seeing him sing in a little drunkard in the capital.
Noah, who is also a singer, released his second album called Gemini in May and was scheduled to tour Ireland but the Covid-19 pandemic has ruined his plans.
In an exclusive interview with The Irish Sun he said, “I remember being in Dublin a few years ago and it was probably my second time in the country. A friend of mine is friends with Glen Hansard and said, ‘Hey, Glen is playing in the strawberry beds, he’s just jamming, you know, on a Thursday night or whatever – you wanna come?
“So we just went to this nice little pub … all we have to do is sit down and listen to Glen at Astral Weeks.
“It was just wild and that’s how I imagine music in Ireland.”
He continued, “He’s a lovely guy. Just an incredible man. I saw him play a couple of times when he was in Toronto. He’s just a great artist and a lovely man. ”
Noah said when he met Glen after the performance he was impressed by the stars and admitted that he mumbled something “incomprehensible” to the Irish performer while telling him, “I love your songs.”
The actor said he hopes to play an appearance at Whelans on Wexford Street in Dublin when he’s back on the road.
He admitted, “Somebody was talking about Whelans, I’ve heard stories from people who were locked up in Whelans overnight.
“That sounds like a pretty good scenario to me, so we’ll see what happens.”
He described the Irish music scene as “low key” but the cast operate at “a very high level” and reveal that he “can’t wait to be back”.
Return to Ireland
Noah continued, “A concert of any kind would feel really good now. But I think there is something really beautiful about intimate shows.
“There are stories that are heard and all I love is a big room that is really quiet.
“Some of the venues where you can be close to your audience just allow you to communicate more closely and make everyone feel like something is happening between you.”
Noah, who visited Ireland in his early twenties, has shown that he is excited to return to the Emerald Isle.
He said: “Ireland has always been a place that I’ve been very interested in.
“I was there in my early twenties, just like a tourist, and certainly Ireland’s musical tradition is an incredible testimony.
SEE THE SIGHTS
“I managed to see some great shows while I was there. I really want to go back and play a few shows there.
“I flew into Dublin and spent about two weeks driving around.
“I drove over to Galway and over to the Aran Islands and then around the Ring of Kerry and over to Cork.
“We moved and it was really nice.”
Noah plays Patrick Brewer in Schitt’s Creek – who beat all comedy categories at the virtual Emmys 2020 in September.
Schitt’s Creek, tells the story of the wealthy Rose family losing their fortune, is the first comedy to win all four leading actor awards. It debuted in 2015 and ran for six seasons before ending in 2020.
The show’s popularity increased when fans started streaming it on Netflix.
Noah, who plays a rendition of The Best on the program, announced that he was gaining more and more fans as people discovered the show on the streaming platform.
He said, “You know, when I did a song on the show in season four, Tina Turner’s The Best, which certainly helped people find my music.”
Noah, who married fellow actress Clare Stone in August, revealed that his latest single, Honesty, was written about her.
He said, “I think honesty is probably about falling in love. This is a song I wrote after I met – my current wife.
“We just got married last summer. It’s about the feeling you have when you’ve just met someone and it really starts to click and turn your head in a different way.

“You know, you didn’t understand that this type of connection is possible. And so I think that feeling is definitely on file.
“And it’s just the opposite – being isolated, being alone, you know, having doubts. I’m not sure where things are going or how everything will work out. So I think the title comes from the polarity. ”
He added, “I’m enjoying the moment, recently married, basking in the afterglow of Schitt’s Creeks Emmy success, bringing out new music and just trying to write new pieces and think about this crazy world we live in. ”
