Clayton Center presents Ken Waldman, from Maryville to Moose Pass
when: Fri, February 6, 2015
where: Harold And Jean Lambert Recital Hall
time: 7:30pm


Known as Alaska's Fiddling Poet, Ken Waldman has drawn on his 25 years in Alaska to produce poems, stories, and fiddle tunes that combine into a performance uniquely his. Nine CDs mix Appalachian-style string-band music with original poetry. Eight books include six poetry collections, a memoir, and a children's book. Since 1995 he's toured full-time, performing at the nation's leading festivals and clubs.
Ken uses his music in performance as backdrop as he shares original poems—poetry often about this music—and tells stories. A former college professor with an MFA in Creative Writing, he's been a visiting writer at over 80 colleges and universities, a visiting artist at over 200 schools in 32 states, and has led workshops from Alaska to Maine.
Here in Maryville, Ken will be joined by a pair of multi-instrumentalists, John Fabke from Nashville, and former Knoxville resident, Brian Vollmer. The Friday night show concludes a four-day residency in the community.
A solid old-time fiddler . . . Waldman's originals are worth noting.”
--Fiddler Magazine
By age-old tradition, itinerant and touring performers have lives in which their music is interwoven with their lives. No one conveys this better and more powerfully [than Waldman].”
--Sing Out! Magazine
". . . might tempt you to plan a road trip with a journal under one arm and a fiddle under the other."
   Boston Globe

“This performance and four day residency is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Tennessee Arts Commission.”
