Loudon Wainwright III On Conan O'Brien September 17th
Loudon Wainwright III will be featured on Late Night With Conan O'Brien on Wednesday, September 17, 2008. While Loudon has appeared on the show a number of times in the past, this appearance precedes international touring in support of his new CD, Recovery. On Recovery, Loudon revisits his own classic early material, giving full band treatment (including the CD's producer Joe Henry on one track and Bill Frisell on two others) to previously solo acoustic songs. The result has met with universal acclaim as did his recent LA showcase of the project featuring guests Joe Henry and son Levon, as well as Loudon's daughter Lucy Wainwright Roche, Van Dyke Parks, and most of the band from the CD.
Loudon will be touring extensively this fall - please see tour dates>>
