In Conversation with Rufus Wainwright

Saturday, January 25, 1:15 p.m.–1:40 p.m.
Audible Speakeasy, 692 Main St.

Legendary Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and composer Rufus Wainwright will join Audible’s artistic producer Kate Navin in a spirited conversation about the creative process behind powerful music and stories. Wainwright will explore his upcoming original project, Road Trip Elegies: Montreal to New York, which covers a journey he took many times with his beloved late mother, Canadian folk singer Kate McGarrigle, from Montreal to New York City. The route represents both a physical and metaphorical life journey for him, one that oscillates between the emotional poles of his divorced mother and father living in Canada and New York, respectively.
