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.
“There are people who play folk music, and there are people who are folk music; Gary Blanchard is clearly the latter. I first heard his music more than thirty years ago, and even then, I recognized him as the best of the Greenwich Village era folksingers. More than a typical singer/songwriter, Gary is the living embodiment of the spirit of what he sings. From genuinely irresistible sing-alongs to heart-tugging ballads, even a casual listener can hear that this guy is the real deal. The music that PBS specials call “the folk revival” is, more simply put, Gary Blanchard. I so dig this guy, and am so respectful and envious of his talent.” ”
