Stephen "Qacung" Blanchett
If you're familiar with the Alaska music scene you might recognize Blanchett as a member of the band, Pamyua. Stephen & his brother, Phillip, formed the band together back in 1995. Spenard Jazz Fest is excited to have Stephen on to offer a solo set.
Qacung is a performing artist, a culture-bearer, art and culture educator, and an advocate for equity and inclusion. Earlier on in his nearly 30-year career in performance art, he realized his passion to teach the beautiful songs and dances of his culture.
He is also the Director of the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council and on the Board of Directors for the Western Arts Alliance.
