Music Runs Through It is partnering with Dolan’s Pub to present the live performance series, Up Close and Personal. The series will feature early shows on Wednesday evenings with a 7:30 start, and will showcase local and international artists. The seating will be set up in a ‘listening room’ style, which will support an intimate setting, as the name suggests. This atmosphere will facilitate a Q&A at the end of the first set, allowing the audience to interact with the performer.
Meaghan Blanchard – Wednesday, May 30
Meaghan is a gifted guitarist with her own blend of light claw hammer/finger picking style; paired with a crystal pure voice and a unique ability to write and tell stories through charming character driven songs.
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.
