Names, Part 2
Last week's show was a hit, and I had lots of "leftovers", so it was more names songs tonight!
Thanks to Fred Wilkes for his help raising funds for WICN, and thanks to all who phoned in a pledge.

Loud & Rich

Loudon Wainwright III is one of America’s most cherished music icons; a darkly witty and touchingly personal songwriter and storyteller. He started out in the folk clubs of New York and Boston before going on to parallel music and acting careers, giving birth to over 20 albums, acting in a long list of productions (from M*A*S*H to The 40 Year Old Virgin) as well as creating music for film and theatre.

Richard Thompson is the product of a working class London family; teenage founder of British musical pioneers Fairport Convention; creator (with then-wife Linda Thompson) of a series of critically acclaimed musical masterpieces in the 1970’s and 80’s; and proud owner of an ongoing legacy of great solo albums that continues to this day. He was named by Rolling Stone to their “Top 20 Guitarists of All-Time”, and is the recipient of a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award.

Loud & Rich will embark on their first ever co-headlining tour in October! Find local dates here.
