Loudon Wainwright III (NC)

“In my head, Loudon Wainwright is Bono.” – Director Judd Apatow to Rolling Stone Magazine, 2012

Known for his witty and self-deprecating style and for his clever lyrics, Wainright has released 22 studio albums, and in 1999 said, “you could characterize the catalog as somewhat checkered, although I prefer to think of it as a tapestry.”

In January 2010, he won his first Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album, and released a new recording in April 2012. We could continue to list Wainwright’s prodigious accomplishment further, and at great length, but in addition to catch him on the occasional classic M*A*S*H episode reruns – why not come and see this legendary performer make his premiere appearance at the VFMF for yourself!
