Loudon Wainwright III makes his 14th appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va. Wainwright first played Mountain Stage in 1988 — at that time, he was already regarded as one of America's finest singer-songwriters. Since that time, Wainwright's sardonic, poignant wit has helped him win armloads of awards and countless more fans.

Wainwright describes his newest album, Older Than My Old Man Now, as a "tale of decay," taking note of the fact that he's already lived longer than his father did. Wainwright closes his set in an unexpected way — with a 10-minute, word-for-word recitation of one of his father's columns from Life Magazine.

Set List
  • "Brand New Dance"
  • "Harlan County"
  • "Susie"
  • "In C"
