Patty McLaughlin was born and raised in Toronto and began singing for a living in her early twenties. She has been a part of the folk scene in and around the GTA since the late-seventies.
In the mid-eighties, she moved to Aurora, where she raised her children, Amy & Ben. She still remains active in York Region's folk scene and is a featured performer at most Town of Aurora events year after year. She performs for both children and adults at Aurora's Arctic Adventure, Ribfest, Colors of the Fall and Aurora's Annual Street Sale to name a few. Patty is also the founder and host of the very popular Aurora Folk & Blues Society song circle which takes place every Tuesday night at Jonathan's Restaurant in Aurora.
Patty has recently moved to Innisfil, and has become a welcome performer at local events in this area as well, such as the BarrieFolk Open Mic, Lawnchair Luminata and the Barrie Folk Festival.
Patty is an accomplished guitarist and singer-songwriter. Her genuine warmth draws people to her and keeps them coming back for more.
