Susan writesCHIRP Radio Welcomes Loudon Wainwright III To The Old Town School of Folk Music

by Susan M. Garza

Loudon Wainwright III will be performing Surviving Twin at the Old Town School of Folk Music on the 1st and 2nd of April. He is a humorist, singer, songwriter, and actor.

Surviving Twin is a song and storytelling show inspired by Wainwright’s review of his father’s LIFE magazine columns and wartime letters. His posthumous relationship with his father started when he got to laughing while reading the column his father wrote about their family dog. Wainwright wrote he and his “… long gone old man…are getting along better than we ever have.” 

A visit to his homepage Lw3.com includes a link to a video of a song he wrote before the last presidential election had come to its conclusion. "I Had a Dream" is a song about what it might be like if Trump were to become president.

“Locked up the opposition and the demonstrators too
“That would be me and it might be you”

Humor is also integral to the song Man & Dog which includes:

“When a man has a dog in the city
a man has to carry him a plastic bag on his person at all times” 

If you want tickets to hear Wainwright’s songs and stories in person, get on the waiting list on The Old Town School of Folk Music website. The April 1st & 2nd shows are sold out.
