Loudon Wainwright III

"Mr. Wainwright has proved to be far and away the most candid diarist among the singer-songwriters who... brought confessional poetry into popular song... Mr. Wainwright wrings more human truth out of his contradiction than any other songwriter of his generation." -- New York Times Perhaps best known for his stint on M*A*S*H and that great ode to the open highway, “Dead Skunk In The Middle of the Road”, Wainwright is a Shedd favorite (this will be his 4th appearance here). Older Than My Old Man Now (2012) was named one of NPR’s Top 10 Albums of 2012. Now Hear This Series Ticketing: Purchase at The Shedd Institute Ticket Office (541-434-7000, 868 High Street).
