Thanks for stopping by! I am a singer songwriter based in Sebastopol, CA, and I play in a trio called The Musers, and in an Irish traditional band called Cularan. You can find out where the shows are, what Megan is working on, and hear about the new Musers CD, which we are mixing right now! You can also hear tracks from my latest CD, In My Next Life. The title track My Next Life, a bluesy love song requests the same partner in her next life.
Recently, a host of the West Coast Songwriters said ” Speaking on behalf of all the WCS Chapter Managers, I thought you should know that we have decided to change the name of the “Best Song of the Month Award” to the “Megan McLaughlin Award” as I won Best Song at every chapter (Napa, Petaluma, San Francisco, Berkeley, Palo Alto, Redwood City, Vallejo and San Rafael) in Northern California during the 2017 season.
Last Summer I joined forces with Anita Bear Sandwina (mandolin, banjolin, fiddle, and guitar) and Tom Kuhn (upright bass) to form The Musers. Our mix of mellifluous harmonies, soaring melodies, and award winning songs will carry you away. We have just finished recording at Artspoke Studio in Berkeley, and are now mixing our debut CD planned for release in Spring of 2018. www.the-musers.com
I also play guitar with Cularan, an Irish Trad Band made up of Rufus Gandari on fiddle, Randall McNeill on mandolin, and Chris Dillingham on concertina and whistles. We have recently been mashing up my own songs with fiddle tunes.
I have a BUNCH of shows coming up – solo, Musers, and Cularan, so look at the shows page…
