    Jack Gladstone grew up immersed in the rich oral tradition of the American West. A descendant of Chief Red Crow of the Blood Tribe and William Gladstone, a skilled Scottish carpenter who helped build Montana’s Ft. Benton and Alberta’s Ft. Whoop-Up, Jack discovered early both adventure and harmony within Indian and white cultures. A full time performing and recording artist since 1988, Jack uses his unique songwriting skills to build bridges and link cultures. He has honed his native Blackfeet storytelling abilities with a sophisticated understanding of mythology and art that speaks to the spiritual within his audiences.
     

     

    “A Weekend with Jack Gladstone” will provide a musical performance of critically acclaimed music, lyric poetry, and spoken word narrative to Montana communities and schools that recognizes the significance of the Indigenous voice and uphold the Essential Understandings Regarding Montana Indians.
