There's lots happening in Martha Wainwright's world, with a new album coming very soon. Today's news is that Serious will be presenting her first UK show in more than four years this September.
Martha was born in New York City to folk legends Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III. She is Rufus Wainwright's sister and they often collaborate in shows and on records. Martha is also half-sister to Lucy Wainwright Roche and they recently made a record together, Songs In The Dark, to much acclaim, including a JUNO nomination. She has spent time on the silver screen playing characters in Martin Scorsese’s “Aviator” and more recently in the HBO special “Olive Kitteridge” alongside Frances McDormand.
