North of Superior - Singer/Songwriter

Barry McLoughlin is a Dublin, Ireland born and Canadian raised acoustic artist residing North of Superior in small town Sioux Lookout, Ontario. A prolific songwriter, McLoughlin first graced the hallowed Massey Hall, Toronto stage at age 17. His debut "Pieces" CD received 5 STAR acclaim from ROOTS MUSIC REPORT, Texas resonating with the fragile hearts and probing minds of a loyal international audience, in a similar fashion to his more recent "Windswept" CD.  As one rugged fan notes "McLoughlin has the ability to put into words what so many men long to say".




Armed with a voice both haunting and soothing, acoustic guitar in hand, Barry is a captivating singer/songwriter
