Meaghan Blanchard is a two time ECMA award winning songwriter from Prince Edward Island, Canada.
She is a gifted guitarist, who pairs a crystal pure voice with a unique ability to write and tell stories through charming character driven songs.
“THE GREAT ESCAPE” is ECMA award-winning songwriter Meaghan Blanchard’s fourth album and 2018 release. It was from the back-porch of a Prince Edward Island waterfront cottage that she wrote this new collection of songs. It is an album that captures Meaghan’s 27th year: a year of love (a husband), belonging (a new country home) and of deep heartache (the loss of a dear friend). “The Great Escape” was produced by Jim Bryson, in Stitsville, Ontario. The songs are strong, at times deeply personal, and sown throughout are the narratives of men and women who have rumbled with profound universal themes: self-doubt, fear and hope for a better way of living.
Meaghan Blanchard will perform at the Spencerville Mill on Thursday September 20th and at the Althorpe Bolingbroke Community Hall (ABC Hall) on Friday September 21st.
