Loudon Wainwright III

  • Aired: 10/06/2008
  • 32:50
  • Rating: TV-G
Two-time Grammy nominee Loudon Wainwright III has performed in virtually every nook and cranny of American popular culture. For all his artistic versatility, music is Loudon's bread and butter, and his knucklehead-savant lyrics have set him in a class all his own. He performs solo on guitar and banjo in a set that draws from his 25-album career, including songs from his latest, "Recovery."
