A master of lushly confessional, orchestral pop, Wainwright – the precocious offspring of folk singers Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III, and big brother to fellow songsmith Martha – has also found time to dabble in opera (2009's Prima Donna), ballet and a double LP of Judy Garland covers (Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall).
