The Wainwrights: A Family Act

Singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright has released his second album, Poses. His sister Martha sings harmony on most of the tracks. The siblings perform selections from the album, and talk with Noah Adams about growing up in a musical family. Rufus' mother is Kate McGarrigle, who writes and sings with her sister Anna, and his father is singer-songwriter Loudon Wainwright III.
