We’re thrilled to bring you an exclusive kitchen session with Loudon Wainwright III. Currently touring the UK and Ireland, Loudon made a detour to Todmorden to give us half a dozen songs, including a couple that you won’t find on record. There are lots more treats, including a bluegrass version of a U2 anthem and a rare live recording of a classic banger by King Curtis.
