Martha Wainwright Taking Folk, Family On the Road
Folk-pop songstress Martha Wainwright has announced a string of headlining tour dates that will take place throughout October, November and December. The shows are in support of her upcoming album, Come Home to Mama, the singer/songwriter’s fourth full-length release. The tour kicks off on October 10 in Brooklyn, NY, and hits up cities such as Burlington, VT; Cambridge, MA; and Philadelphia, PA. The final show sees Wainwright on the West Coast, with a performance on December 19 at The Fox Theater in Oakland, CA. You can also check out Martha when she performs with her brother, Rufus, for two Christmas shows on December 21 & 22 in Los Angeles, CA, at Royce Hall.
Martha Wainwright’s career path was likely determined for her before she was even born. Her father, Loudon Wainwright III, is a Grammy award-winning songwriter who has released 22 studio albums since 1967. Her mother, the late Kate McGarrigle, was one half of the singer/songerwriter duo, Kate and Anna McGarrigle. And I’d be remiss not to mention Martha’s brother, Rufus, a singer/songwriter who’s earned several nominations, including one for a Grammy award in the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album category.
Check out the little sis when she hits the road this fall.
