Loudon Wainwright III

In many ways the singer-songwriter’s singer-songwriter, the nearly 70-year-old Loudon Wainwright III continues to pump out first-rate acoustic music a decade and a half into the EDM-soaked aughts. He’s back in Athens for another tour stop at The Foundry on Thursday; this time, the show’s in support of his solid Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet) LP, released last year via Proper Records. Wainwright’s funny, forthright approach to his work continues to inspire generations of folky followers, including but certainly not limited to his well-known artist children Rufus, Martha and Lucy.
