Here's the link to the interview page: A 'Handsome' Tribute From Loudon Wainwright:

August 19, 2009 - The latest project from famed singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III is a double-album tribute to another musician entirely. Called High Wide and Handsome: The Charlie Poole Project, it's a celebration of the old-time country banjo player, who died in 1931.

Wainwright and producer Dick Connette dug into Charlie Poole's recordings — and into Kinney Rorrer's biography, Ramblin' Blues — eventually writing nine new songs about the life and times of a man they celebrate as a country-music pioneer.

Wainwright began his own career three decades after Poole's death, making a name for himself in the '60s with humorous and autobiographical songs. In 1972, on his Album III, he scored the Top 40 hit "Dead Skunk," and since then he's recorded 20 albums.

Wainwright co-wrote (with Joe Henry) the music for the film Knocked Up; as an actor, he's appeared in that film and many other movies and TV shows, from three episodes of the 1970s hit M*A*S*H to this summer's family comedy G-Force. His own family is famously musical: Rufus Wainwright and Martha Wainwright, both singer-songwriters, are Wainwright's children with ex-wife Kate McGarrigle, herself a noted folk singer.

Listening to it right now as I write. I knew him 40 some years ago and this is the first time I've been tempted to go out buy one of his albums. From what I've heard so far all I can say is "Good Job!".

I've had the pleasure of listening to the CD and sharing it on my radio show the past few weeks. I interviewed Loudon and Dick Connette about the project for an upcoming article in Sing Out!

I think it is a brilliant recording. This is the recording Charlie Poole never got to make. Loudon does some brilliant interpretations in his own style, and there are some new songs from Loudon & Dick that fit the Poole repertoire perfectly!

Well, I heard the interview today and was so moved as to tell my wife that I must go out and get the album. I really liked his voice and the "feel" of the music. This is another of those times when I can kick myself in the ass for not listening closer to an artist that I might have been enjoying for the last two decades or more.
I'd bet it would be fun to know him. Cheers,..............mwh
