Description: AMERICAN SONGWRITER, FOLK SINGER, HUMORIST AND ACTOR Loudon Wainwright III’s long and illustrious career is highlighted by more than two dozen album releases, as well as several movie and TV credits. In 2010, he 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 playing Captain Calvin Spalding, the “singing surgeon” on M*A*S*H. His songs have been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright and Mose Allison. He has collaborated with songwriter/producer Joe Henry on the music for Judd Apatow’s hit movie Knocked Up. He composed topical songs for NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered, as well as ABC’s Nightline, and recorded several songs for the soundtrack of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. As an actor, Wainwright has appeared in films directed by Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe and Judd Apatow.
