Mr. Wainwright has proved to be far and away the most candid diarist among the singer-songwriters who . . . brought confessional poetry into popular song.

New York Times

Folkie great shares wry humor and hard-won wisdom . . . [he] modernizes blues and Americana.

Rolling Stone

Loudon Wainwright’s long and illustrious career is highlighted by more than two dozen album releases, movie and TV credits, and his autobiography, Liner Notes. In 2010, Wainwright won a Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album for High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project. His 2012 recording, Older Than My Old Man Now, was named one of NPR’s Top 10 Albums of the Year.

Wainwright is perhaps best known for the novelty song “Dead Skunk (in the Middle of the Road),” and for playing Captain Calvin Spalding, the “singing surgeon,” on the American television show M*A*S*H.
