Francesca Blanchard

22-year-old Francesca Banchard has been called a "a profound, mature talent” who "displays guile and artistic sensitivity that would be the envy of many tunesmiths twice her age. She may be young, but she has an old soul.” Her intimate music, sung in French and English, reflects on her travels, both physical and emotional, and shows influences ranging from Norah Jones and Carla Bruni to Eva Cassidy and Francoise Hardy. Francesca has opened for Suzanne Vega, Caravan Palace, the Parkington Sisters, and performed at the prestigious Francofolies Festival in Montreal in 2013. She is recording her debut album for release in 2015. Born and raised in France, Francesca traveled the globe with her family before settling in Charlotte, Vermont.
