Loudon Wainwright III
Friday, January 25, 2019
Begins at 7:30pm
The Arden Theatre | 5 St. Anne Street
With over two dozen albums to his credit, Loudon Wainwright III is one of the most prolific American singer-songwriters of his generation, period. When it comes to examining the day-to-day trials and tribulations of life, and relaying them with literary aplomb, a wink and a nod, he belongs alongside the talents of the esteemed Randy Newman.
Better known as the Mark Twain of contemporary songwriting, Wainwright is not only able to have his tongue firmly planted in his cheek during a politically inspired song, but also give way to a humorous piece dealing with the extended family. Live shows have been his calling card for decades – with anecdotes and send-ups alone worth the price of admission!
