Welcome to Loyd Artists!
John Loyd founded Loyd Artists in 1985 after over twenty years in entertainment booking and management, sound, and event promotion. Starting in 1995, Loyd Artists, under the direction of John Loyd and Peggy Baldwin, endeavored to present touring artists of excellent artistic merit who entertain, inspire, and educate audiences of all ages. Susan Lounsbury joined Loyd Artists in 1999 and took over the ownership of the agency in 2013. With the assistance of John Ludovico, Kachina Davine, and Peggy Baldwin, Susan has continued the Loyd Artists' commitment to quality performing arts and arts education. We are grateful to the presenters who put their faith in the agency and especially the artists' creative work year after year.
