Lucy Wainwright Roche


Loudon Wainwright III has produced so many musical progeny that perhaps they should start crossbreeding him. Brooklyn’s Lucy Wainwright Roche (the daughter of Wainwright and singer Suzzy Roche) has a lovely voice and a talent for soft acoustic arrangements. Last year she released a self-titled debut full of introspective travel songs (“i-35,” “Statesville”) and dueted with Ira Glass on a cover of Elliot Smith’s “Say Yes.” Tonight at the Highline Ballroom, she celebrates her 30th birthday.
