A Loudon Wainwright III concert is planned for 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 15, at One Longfellow Square, 181 State St. in Portland.
Here’s a chance to see the patriarch of a very musical family. Wainwright’s 2010 album “High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project” won him a Grammy for best traditional folk album, and he also has two previous nominations. Wainwright’s rich discography dates back more than 50 years, and he’s a solid acting resume too. From 1974-75, Wainwright portrayed the singing surgeon on three episodes of M*A*S*H and has numerous other TV and film credits. Wainwright is father to musicians Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche.
Tickets cost $45 in advance, $55 day of show.
