The Edmonds Center for the Arts presents singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright in concert on Monday, Oct. 28, at 7:30 p.m. The fourth performance in ECA’s 2013-2014 Season, Wainwright will play a show of solo piano tunes — new and old — in an up-close-and-personal setting. The show is sponsored by The Cheesemonger’s Table, Phil Butler & Marni Muir, and Alan Lawrence/Edward Jones Investments.

Affectionately referred to by Elton John as “the greatest songwriter on the planet” and praised by The New York Times for his “genuine originality,” Wainwright has established himself as one of the great male vocalists and songwriters of his generation.

A Grammy Award nominee, he is the son of folk singers Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, and brother of Martha Wainwright. Wainwright has received Juno Awards for Best Alternative Album in 1999 and 2002 for Rufus Wainwright and Poses, respectively, and nominations for his albums Want Two (2005) and Release the Stars (2008). He was nominated for Songwriter of the Year in 2008 for his Release the Stars album.

There are a limited number of tickets left, at $52, $57 and $62, and $15 youth/student. You can purchase online at www.ec4arts.org or call the ECA box office at 425-275-9595.
