Angie McLoughlin on stage this Saturday in Cloughjordan.

Clough’ gig for Angie

Cloughjordan Arts are launching our annual music and arts festival with a gig by country and blues singer Angie McLaughlin this Saturday, April 13, at 7.30pm at the Cloughjordan Enterprise Centre in Cloughjordan Ecovillage. Tickets: €15 are available at

Previously of the much-loved Dublin roots band the Sick and Indigent Song Club, Angie released her first solo album in 2023:

‘The Boy is Gone’, channeling the loss of her partner into a moving song cycle that, as an Irish Times review stated: “balances hope with despair and underlines the healing power of music”.

‘The Boy is Gone’ was produced by Martin Stephenson (of The Daintees). McLaughlin and Stephenson collaborated virtually during lockdown, passing songs back and forth and creating an album with an ever-present search for hope through dark times.

Born in Scotland, Angie has strong roots in Donegal and her brand of raw, authentic folk and affecting storytelling makes for a memorable live experience.

So, book your tickets and come along to Cloughjordan Enterprise Centre this Saturday for a very special night of haunting lyrics and powerful tunes.


“Well versed in American roots culture, McLaughlin moves easily and confidently between strains of old time, folk, blues, soul and gospel. Her voice is rich, warm and filled with emotion.” - Irish Times
