Loudon Wainwright III (Tue)

$45.00

Born in Chapel Hill, N.C. in 1946, Loudon Wainwright III came to fame when “Dead Skunk” became a Top 20 hit in 1972. He had  studied acting at Carnegie-Mellon University, but dropped out to partake in the “Summer of Love” in San Francisco, and wrote his  first song in 1968 (“Edgar,” about a lobsterman in Rhode Island). 

In October of 2020 Loudon unveiled the album ‘I’d Rather Lead A Band,’ in which he is featured as a vocalist with Vince Giordano  and The Nighthawks. The 14 -song collection of classic songs from the 1920s and ‘30s was widely acclaimed. During the pandemic,  Wainwright has produced a number of virtual shows, including “The Special Relationship” (presented by the Royal Albert Hall) and  

“The Great Unknown,” a musical tribute to his friend, the late George Gerdes. Also featured in that show were Richard Thompson,  Suzanne Vega, Steve Forbert, and the members of Spinal Tap. 

Wainwright also created a one-man theatrical show, Surviving Twin, which combines his songs and the writings of his late father.  Initially developed as part of University of North Carolina’s Playmakers series, it focuses on fatherhood—both being a father and  having one—and also explores the issues of birth, self-identity, loss, mortality, fashion, and of course, pet ownership. Surviving Twin  has been performed in limited theater engagements and is available as a Netflix special, produced by Judd Apatow and directed by  Christopher Guest.  

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 NPR’s  Morning Edition and All Things Considered and ABC’s Nightline. An accomplished actor, he has appeared in films directed by Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe and Judd Apatow. Wainwright has also starred on TV in  M.A.S.H. and Undeclared, and on Broadway in Pump Boys and Dinettes. More recently, he appeared in the film Pleased To Meet You (with fellow music legends John Doe, Aimee Mann and Joe Henry), and the television series, “Mosaic,” directed by Steven  Soderbergh.
