"Mr. Wainwright wrings more human truth out of his contradiction than any other songwriter of his generation"
- The New York Times
Loudon Wainwright III won a 2010 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk album with High Wide & Handsome. He appears at SOPAC in support of his 2012 release, Older Than My Old Man Now, which made NPR’s Top 10 Albums of the Year list. Wainwright's songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison, among others. He has collaborated 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.”
