About Bryan Blanchette

Bryan Blanchette is a singer-songwriter who brings more than ten thousand years of Abenaki tradition to his contemporary compositions. He began powwow drumming more than two decades ago and soon after began writing Abenaki language songs. Bryan also studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Read an interview with Bryan on the Vermont Arts Council website.

Thanks to Vermont State Parks and the Vermont Arts Council for their support of Words in the Woods! Words in the Woods events are generously sponsored by a Northeast Kingdom donor in honor of poet Judy Chalmer.
