Loudon Wainwright III has been charming listeners since the early '70s with his honest, anecdotal songs infused with his signature wit and cheeky humor.
This gifted folk singer-songwriter has recorded 25 studio albums, including the 2010 Grammy® Award-winning High, Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project. Loudon is perhaps best known for the novelty song Dead Skunk, which became a Top 20 smash in 1973. Many notable musicians have recorded his music, including Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash and Earl Scruggs.
In addition to his musical talents, Loudon is an accomplished actor. His film credits include The 40-Year-Old Virgin, The Aviator and Big Fish. He's also appeared on TV's Parks and Recreation and Undeclared. Some may remember him as Captain Calvin Spalding, the "singing surgeon," on the hit TV show M*A*S*H.
Always warm and witty on stage, his live performances are not just about his timeless tapestry of music, but also the playful, engaging dialogue he shares with his audience.
