BlueShore Financial Centre for the Performing Arts at CU Presents Loudon Wainwright III

Event Details

Capilano University

“Far and away the most candid diarist among the singer-songwriters who… brought confessional poetry into popular song…Mr. Wainwright wrings more human truth out of his contradiction than any other songwriter of his generation.” ~New York Times

With 22 albums to his name, a Grammy win, two Grammy nominations, and countless roles in TV and films under his belt there isn’t much that this veteran entertainer can’t do. With his sharp wit and shrewd lyrics he moves his audiences from laughter to tears and back again. From his humble beginnings as “the singing surgeon” on M*A*S*H to his 1972 hit novelty song, “Dead Skunk” and a role as the original musician/sidekick on The David Letterman Show to the musical success of his children, Rufus and Martha Wainwright you could say he has become a bit of a household name.
