An evening with Loudon Wainwright III

Small Loudon Pic

The Sheridan Arts Foundation presents an intimate night of music with Loudon Wainwright III at the Sheridan Opera House on Wednesday, April 1, 2015. Tickets are $25/$35 reserved seats and on sale now. Loudon Wainwright III has had a long and illustrious career highlighted by more than two dozen album releases, a 2010 Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album for "High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project," and two previous Grammy nominations for "I'm Alright", 1985 and “More Love Songs”, 1986. His 2012 recording, "Older Than My Old Man Now" was named one of NPR's Top 10 Albums of the Year. And in 2014, "Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet)" — or HGTB(Y), for short — marks his the 26th career release to-date. 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.
