    A singer-songwriter of immense depth and wit, Loudon Wainwright III has been thrilling audiences with his sharp, literate take on the folk tradition for over 40 years. From the “next Dylan” tag of the early 70’s to his evolution into a revered cult figure and Grammy-winning folk elder statesman, Wainwright’s singular talent has never dimmed. Wainwright’s career has been that of a slow burn rather than a firecracker. His critically-adored records, beginning with 1970’s Album I, helped the songwriter gain a devoted cult following. Wainwright’s rapier wit, self-deprecation and often darkly cynical take on the human condition combined with his strident vocals and deft finger-picking guitar skills spawned a whole new generation of singer-songwriters to follow in his wake.
