Two of America's most celebrated singer-songwriters are teaming up to deliver a night of emotionally stirring, uplifting and surely, at times, humorous song.

2010 Grammy winner for Best Traditional Folk Album, Loudon Wainwright III's music ranges from the deeply moving to the hilarious, and on his latest CD, Older Than My Old Man Now, he examines life, family, and mortality as such. An accomplished actor (Sleepwalk With Me, Big Fish, 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, MASH etc) and writer (The New York Times, Mojo), Loudon has worked with directors Martin Scorsese, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe and Judd Apatow while remaining one of the best live performers of his generation. The New York Times proclaimed that Loudon "wrings more human truth out of his contradiction than any other songwriter of his generation."

Multiple Grammy nominee Iris DeMent delivers her own truth steeped in traditional Country and Gospel music on her latest release, Sing The Delta. NPR stated "The songs on Sing The Delta only grow more rich, more emotionally complex, the more you hear them. And I plan to keep listening to these songs for a long time." Sing The Delta presents twelve self-penned compositions from Iris whose first three albums established her as one of the most beloved and respected singer-songwriters in American music inspiring Country music legend Merle Haggard to call her "the best singer I've ever heard."
