Billy McLaughlin

Siloa Lutheran Church is located at 2607 405th Ave. NW in Braham. The event is free and open to the public. General admission seating is limited to first come, first served.

Billy McLaughlin is a guitarist and composer. For 20 years, he astounded audiences around the world with his complex and rhythmic music.

He is recognized as an innovative performer and composer who embraces the advantages of acoustic guitar amplification, unorthodox techniques and altered tunings while celebrating a gift for melody. His enormous yet fluid acoustic guitar tone has carried him around the world, to Billboard’s Top-Ten Chart and most recently through a devastating medical disorder called focal dystonia. McLaughlin has had to re-learn the guitar left-handed and is in the early stages of what might be described as “one of the great musical-comeback stories of all time.”
