MEAGHAN BLANCHARD

(CANADA/PEI)

Raised by a family of musicians in the rolling hills of Prince Edward Island, Canada, Meaghan came by music honestly.  Throughout her childhood, she sat side-stage at local community halls while her grandparent’s band would play “that good old fashioned country music”.

Today, Meaghan is an acclaimed multiple award winning artist who took home her second East Coast Music Award for her third album “She’s Gonna Fly”; a project recorded down in Athens, Georgia USA with esteemed producer John Keane (Nancy Griffith, R.E.M.).  She has performed for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, played 47 shows in 15 days at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and has toured extensively across Canada, the US and the UK.

In 2015, the “Meaghan Blanchard Song Writing Camp for Girls” was inaugurated in Charlottetown, PEI; a two day camp created and hosted by Meaghan with a focus on co-writing; providing support for young women from her home province who are interested in song writing and in careers within the music industry.  Meaghan is also one third of the group The Eastern Belles (with Catherine MacLellan and Ashley Condon).
