Glen Hansard of The Frames features in a new book about Dublin's music scene entitled 'Waking Up In Dublin: A Musical Tour Of The Celtic Capital'.

The book, which was written by journalist Neil Hegarty, was published earlier this week.

Hegarty interviewed local musicians including Hansard, Irish folk musician and whistle player Cormac Breatnach and Horslips legend Barry Devlin alongside stalwarts of the scene such as Julie Collins and Dave Kennedy of Road Records.

The book also includes mini-biographies of bands including The Frames, Planxty and The Crash Ensemble as well as lists of Essential Dublin Discs provided by the musicians themselves.
