Fiddler-Poet Ken Waldman
Friday, April 19
Taylor Student Lounge, Seymour Union
Ken Waldman, long known as Alaska’s Fiddling Poet, has drawn on his 25 years in Alaska to produce poems, stories and fiddle tunes that combine into a performance uniquely his own. He will perform music and poetry at 4 p.m. Friday, April 19, in Taylor Student Lounge in Seymour Union.
A former college professor, Waldman has published six full-length poetry collections, a memoir, a children’s book and has released nine CDs that combine old-time, Appalachian-style string-band music with original poetry.
The event is free and open to the public, sponsored in part by the John & Elaine Fellowes Fund at Knox College.
