Loudon Wainwright III
- 6 July Thursday 8:00 PM
Loudon Wainwright III became a folk singer/songwriter in the late '60s, singing humorous and nakedly honest autobiographical songs that have made him a cult figure. His recording career started in 1970 and now includes 26 albums, among them the 2010 Grammy Award winner for Best Traditional Folk Album, High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project. Wainwright's songs have been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison, among others.
Also an accomplished actor, Wainwright hit the screens early in his career playing Captain Calvin Spalding, the “singing surgeon”, on M*A*S*H and has appeared in films directed by Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe, and Judd Apatow. He was also the original musician/sidekick on The David Letterman Show. Additionally, Wainwright has co-written with songwriter/producer Joe Henry on the music for Judd Apatow's hit movie Knocked Up, written music for the British theatrical adaptation of the Carl Hiaasen novel Lucky You, and composed topical songs for ABC's Nightline and NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered.
