Gary Blanchard has been a folk singer since the peace, love and rock’n’roll days of the late 1960’s. He started out in the folk circuit in Baltimore and moved to Massachusetts in 2006. His songs are mellow, positive and uplifting. Gary describes himself as a hippie and his Epiphone Masterbilt AJ-45ME, named Dreamer, is a custom-made tribute to the flower-power era.
“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.”
