Actor, composer, and Grammy Award-winning songwriter, brings his patented blend of dark and touching music to the vibrant Ann Arbor folk scene on October 18th at The Ark. In a career that has spanned over 50 years, Wainwright has released 23 studio albums and appeared in 11 feature films. Perhaps best known for his 1972 folk-comedy hit “Dead Skunk,” which peaked at Number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100, Wainwright’s career since has been a mix of well-received acting roles and poignant and humorous albums, including “High Wide & Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project,” which won a Grammy for Best Traditional Folk Album in 2009. His latest effort, “Haven’t Got the Blues (Yet)” (2014), showcases the now 68-year-old handling encroaching age with his trademark personal touch.

“All The Fragile Pretty Things…” Listening To The New Album by Little Traps

Little Traps might trick you. The intonation of acoustic guitars, sanguine pedal steel, brushy drums and tender vocalizations will bring you in close, make you sit down cross legged and ready yourself for the understated swoon of endorphins typically triggered by “folk music.” And you lean in closer…, a bit closer still. And those lyrics hit
