Event Description:Loudon Wainwright III has an illustrious career, with over two dozen album releases, a 2010 Grammy, and he is best known for the song “Dead Skunk (in the Middle of the Road)”, and for playing Captain Calvin Spalding on the TV show, "Mash." His songs have been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison. As an actor, Wainwright has worked with Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe, and Judd Apatow. Loudon Wainwright’s most recent project is his one-man play entitled “Surviving Twin.” A solo piece many years in the making, Surviving Twin is what the singer-songwriter calls a “posthumous collaboration” with his writer father. Part concert, part dramatic reading, part family slide-show, it is a hybrid theatrical form consisting mainly of songs written by Loudon III, along with readings of magazine columns written by his late father, Loudon Jr., and photographs that span four generations.
