Rescheduled from Saturday 25 September 2021

All tickets remain valid for the new date.


For the past fifty two years, Loudon Wainwright III has carved out a distinguished career as one of our most original singer-songwriters, a six-string diarist with material that is by turns, tongue-in-cheek, tender, sarcastic, heart-wrenching and always deeply personal. Along the way, he’s released over twenty albums, won a Grammy, acted in film and TV, and had his songs recorded by artists including Johnny Cash, Mose Allison, Bonnie Raitt, and his own son, Rufus Wainwright. 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.  Throughout the pandemic Wainwright has produced  a number of virtual shows, including “The Special Relationship” ( presented by the Royal Albert Hall ) and “The Great Unknown” , his musical tribute to his friend the late George Gerdes. Also featured in that show were  Richard Thompson, Suzanne Vega, Steve Forbert, and the members of Spinal Tap.

In 2015 Loudon Wainwright received a Lifetime Achievement Award  at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in Cardiff.
