Michael McLoughlin, To Our Friends and Patrons

The Showband scene was the cradle of Ireland’s first youth cultural phenomenon. Artists and audiences of this distinct scene were invited to reminisce, discuss, and celebrate the era with artist Michael McLoughlin.

This project will evolve over the course of the year as the artist collects, records, and documents this unique time in the Sligo/Leitrim music ecology.
