Blanty’s unique and exciting style of guitar playing and songwriting are heavily influenced by his 22 years living and playing his music in various far off lands and among many cultures around the world. his live show is euphoric Since returning to the UK 5 years ago, Blanty has played over 400 gigs, 50+ festivals, also weddings, funerals, beer festivals, parties galore, after show parties and many other unusual places. He ran a ‘Forest yurt residency’ in Gisburn Forest in later 2017/early 2018 and he’s also supported some amazing bands; more recently including Henge, Gypsies of Bohemia and Captain Hotknives.
Blanty always goes down really well and fully embraces the festival/event, you never know where he will pop up next and if there’s a late night acoustic space or communal fire then expect to find him there until after dawn where he’ll be jamming, encouraging and entertaining the crowds all night. Blanty is a force of nature who takes great pleasure in ‘making people smile & feel free’, he is loved far and wide and is always asked to return to the festivals and venues where he plays.
