A singer-songwriter who injects his music with wry humor and piercing insight, Loudon Wainwright III has recorded more than 20 albums while frequently composing work for other artists. Hear Wainwright perform a concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia on Friday at noon ET.

Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate and Anna McGarrigle and son Rufus Wainwright have all performed Wainwright's songs. In addition to his album releases, he's acted on TV and penned topical songs for NPR, The New York Times and ABC's Nightline. Wainwright's new album, Strange Weirdos: Music from and Inspired by the Film Knocked Up, came out in May.
