Wainwright III has been charming audiences since the early 70s with his honest, anecdotal songs that are instilled with his signature wit and cheeky humor, that have made him a cult figure. To date, Wainwright has released 24 studio albums, 4 live albums and 6 compilations, as well as appearing in at least 18 television programs and feature films. He was recognized as a 2010 GRAMMY Winner (Best Traditional Folk Album) for “High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project”; received two previous GRAMMY nominations: “I’m Alright,” 1985 and “More Love Songs,” 1986. His most recent album is “I’d Rather Lead a Band.” His songs have been covered by Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, Earl Scruggs, Mose Allison, Big Star, Freakwater, Norma Waterson, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, as well as his son Rufus Wainwright. This is a fantastic show. Audiences will find it unexpectedly beautiful, moving and funny.
