Gary Blanchard has been writing and performing music since the late 1960's. His uplifting lyrics, soothing voice, and stage presence have pleased audiences for decades.
One of the last of the great classic era folkies... and an incredible songwriter. (Also one of the few folkies who can actually carry a tune... and beautifully so!) ”
