Music forged on the north shore of Lake Superior harkens back to the days of old in Scotland and Ireland. Loughlin has been largely influenced by traditional Irish music with the melancholy lyrics and cheerful tunes those songs evoke. The events, rebellions, and misfortunes of the Gaelic speaking peoples are woven into their song writing. Loughlin is a group of musicians born of the land of lakes and forests playing traditional music from the British Isles and originals.
