Louden Wainwright III

Sun. 7/16 at 7pm: Musician, songwriter, actor, and beloved father of a tribe of new talent, Loudon sat down with Art of the Song's John and Viv at the Moab Folk festival to talk about his life in the arts.

Loudon brings a rare perspective to the program having been a staff songwriter for the famed TV Show M*A*S*H, a series in which he also had a recurring role as The Singing Surgeon. Famous for his irreverence, Loudon leads the listener through his songs to many hilarious yet poignant conclusions.
