American songwriter, folk singer, humorist, and actor Loudon Wainwright III takes to the stage at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Friday, March 18, 2022.
Wainwright came to fame when “Dead Skunk” became a Top 20 hit in 1972. He had studied acting at Carnegie-Mellon University, but dropped out to partake in the “Summer of Love” in San Francisco. He wrote his first song “Edgar” in 1968 (about a lobsterman in Rhode Island).
His songs have since been recorded by the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, his son Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison, among others. Wainwright has recorded 27 albums including his 2010 Grammy Award-winning ‘High, Wide & Handsome’.
In October of 2020 Loudon unveiled the album “I’d Rather Lead A Band”, in which he is featured as a vocalist with Vince Giordano and The Nighthawks. The 14-song collection of classic songs from the 1920s and ‘30s was widely acclaimed.
