Loudon Wainwright III is a critically acclaimed songwriter who won the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk Album “High, Wide and Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project”. His songs have been covered by legendary artists including Johnny Cash and Bonnie Raitt.
Now older than his father ever was, it’s got him thinking, and writing, and singing. As he puts it, some of his material deals with “death ‘n’ decay” and he’s approached the subject from all angles, with his customary insight, honesty, and rueful humor.
He is a singer of deeply personal songs that explore the dark corners of family relationships, love, and politics as well as the day's best satirical songwriter.
“Mr. Wainwright wrings more human truth out of his contradiction than any other songwriter of his generation." - New York Times, Stephen Holden
