Celebrating Rockwood Music Hall’s 15-Year Anniversary!
Imagine a mouthful of chilly peppers dipped in maple syrup, and you have Francesca Blanchard. Since the release of her bilingual folk debut Deux Visions in 2015, the Vermont-via-France native has been busy redesigning her wheelhouse. After a year of extensive touring throughout the US and Europe, Blanchard took some time to rediscover what she wanted to say (and how to say it). With powerful vocals and provocatively vulnerable lyrics, Francesca has reclaimed the stage with confidence and charisma. Her newest songs scope a variety of genres and topics, through self-effacing indie-pop with a hint of her acoustic roots. She covers subjects from the madness of social media to the ache of lost love, all the while charming her audience with honest storytelling and a refreshingly personal performance. Blanchard’s newest work is her best and most relatable yet.
