Singer, songwriter, raconteur and entertainer supreme, Loudon Wainwright III has been a star of folk music for close to half a century. Emerging as one of a number of ‘new Bob Dylans’, he was described by The New York Times as “far and away the most candid diarist among the singer-songwriters… who brought confessional poetry into popular song”. His songs have been covered by Johnny Cash, Norma Waterson and his own son, Rufus, and as an actor he’s appeared in films by Judd Apatow, Martin Scorsese and Tim Burton, and on TV in M.A.S.H and David Letterman. The special guest for the show is Loudon’s friend and collaborator for 40 years, the musician and philosophy professor Chaim Tannenbaum.
