LOUDON WAINWRIGHT III TO TOUR IN SUPPORT OF
HIGH WIDE AND HANDSOME: THE CHARLIE POOLE PROJECT
| Loudon Wainwright III|
Fresh from his Best Traditional Folk Album Grammy nomination for High Wide and Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project
(2nd Story Sound Records), Loudon Wainwright III
will tour throughout 2010 to support the highly acclaimed two-CD package.
On the lavishly packaged set, Wainwright performs the beguiling ballads, blues and novelty songs of country pioneer Poole, as well as nine new songs about the singer and picker's life and times, written specially for the album. High Wide & Handsome features such acoustic music luminaries as Chris Thile, Geoff Muldaur and Rob Moose, along with Wainwright's distinguished extended family members: Martha Wainwright and Rufus Wainwright, Lucy Wainwright Roche, Sloan Wainwright, Maggie Roche, Terre Roche and Suzzy Roche.
