"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
Loudon Wainwright III is a Shedd favorite and we really don't know when enough is enough (this will be his 5th appearance here). Wainwright's most recent album, Older Than My Old Man Now, was named one of NPR’s Top 10 Albums of 2012, and he has continued to deliver increasingly rich variations on that and his early reflections on life in the years since. And by all accounts of his current solo show, "Surviving Twin", he just gets better.
