Born with a natural Prairie sensibility, his rural roots running deep in the Pembina Valley and Parkland regions of Manitoba, Quinton is undeniably authentic. He sticks firmly to writing what he knows, and his songs speak to the rural listener with stories of heartbreak, of family and of rural living. As a lifelong outdoors enthusiast, he writes with a strong sense of place and imagery. A student of the great western storyteller Louis L’Amour, Quinton shapes narrative with words, as an artist with a brush.
Sharing the stage with countless Canadian and American country acts, Blair has performed his brand of troubadour, storytelling country that carries heavy undertones both of 70’s outlaw country and 90’s dancehall country flavour with fans all over North America.
Wrangling horses is in his blood and has been a part of the Blair family for generations.
