Subject: RE: Loudon Wainwright
Guest Henry... I found that the 2hrs passed too quickly as well.

How many other performers could entertain you fopr that period of time, without guests or gimmicks.

Loudon only touched on a small part of his reportoire in his appearance...There are so many gems still for the public to hear.

I watched the programme twice, and still found it riveting.
Folk music lives!!!

Loudons material is unusual, in that it contains pain and humour in equal quantities...A heady addictive mix.
Son Rufus, whom I've seen twice in concert has inherited that same magnetism...A truly magnificent writer and performer

I'm a bit disappointed in the work of Martha, who most observers believe will turn out a better writer than Loudon or Rufus...Ake
