Loudon Wainwright III
January 15, 2011
Loudon’s recording High, Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project won a Grammy as Best Traditional Folk Album of 2010, but his work of the last 40 years blends folk, country, and rock with irreverent storytelling and ironic humor. Loudon's wit is sharper than ever, but the bite has more insight than before. Like contemporary Randy Newman, Wainwright finds what's funny in the details and his music has been bringing those details to entertaining life for decades.
