MEAGHAN BLANCHARD, a vibrant red-headed singer-songwriter, grew up in the rolling hills of beautiful Prince Edward Island. Although a shy and quiet child, Meaghan gravitated towards music with a natural ability to write & hum her own tunes at a very young age. As she grew up, Meaghan’s natural vocal ability had her front and center of a number of community gatherings, children’s choirs and kitchen parties in her home town of Hunter River. Although Meaghan’s shyness followed her throughout her school years, she found comfort in logging away her hopes and dreams in small journals that she kept tucked into her desks. Tired of letting her shyness get in the way of her musical dreams, Meaghan turned to her grandmother Glenda - a Country singer who performed most weekends in the rural halls of PEI - for advice. Grammy Glenda’s words still have meaning to her to this day: “Look for the person in the audience who is looking like they’re having a bad day and sing to them; make em’ smile. It’ll take your fear away, and you never know what that could mean to somebody”. It was by watching her grandmother’s performances that Meaghan also came to know and love some of the greatest female country singers of all time: Tammy Wynette, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton. They have all had a significant influence on her music even to this day. Meaghan recorded her first full length collection of songs with producer John Keane (R.E.M., Nancy Griffith, B52′s) in Athens, Georgia. The album She’s Gonna Fly was released in July 2013.
It's Smith week on Canadian Musician Radio as we welcome two accomplished yet stylistically contrasting artists to the show. What's more, we also have a candid conversation with music publicist and Canadian industry icon Richard Flohil, plus some goodies from East Coast Music Week 2014 and more.
The founder of Richard Flohil & Associates has been an instrumental component to the careers of a plethora of successful artists, from k.d. lang and Colin James to Serena Ryder and Justin Rutledge and well beyond. He's received numerous awards and honours from the likes of SOCAN, the CASBYs, and was just named the recipient of the 2014 President's Choice Award from Folk Music Ontario. Join us as we take a look back at Richard's decades in the business.
Then, we'll catch up with Dallas Smith who, after 10 years fronting Canadian rock outfit Default, has released a solo country EP called "Tippin Point." We'll talk about the transition from one genre to the other and get some insight into his creative process, among other things.
We're also very pleased to have Maritimer Meaghan Smith on the program. After a JUNO win for her major label debut, The Cricket's Orchestra, Smith took a few years off to prepare her next release, Have A Heart, set to drop April 22nd. The single of the same name is out now and doing very well at radio. We'll get the scoop from Meaghan on her sonic shift, upcoming affairs, and a whole lot more.
We'll also have some news and updates from ECMW, plus a handful of interviews for later in April, so keep an eye on the page!
The Fairbanks House in Dedham, Massachusetts, built c. 1637 is the oldest timber-frame house in America. It is unique for being owned and lived-in by 8 generations of the Fairbanks family. No other family ever lived in this house. But this house is not just the best preserved 17th century home, it also demonstrates the changes that have occurred in New England and American history over 372 years.
On Thursday, September 13, 2012 Marian Pierre-Louis will speak with Fairbanks House curator, Meaghan Siekham. Meaghan will explore many topics that bring the history of the Fairbanks House alive including the mysteries of the house, Puritan Superstitions, the lives of women at the house and much more.
Tune in live to be eligible to win one of two copies of the book The Fairbanks House by Abbott Lowell Cummings generously donated by the New England Historic Genealogical Society. We'll also be giving out two pairs of tickets to tour the Fairbanks House.
