Bio

20-year Alaska resident, Ken Waldman combines old-time fiddling, original poetry, and Alaska-set storytelling to make a performance uniquely his own. Five CDs, four books (he's a former college professor and his books are distributed nationally), and unusual stories--from 1985-1989 he lived in cabins without running water, and in 1996 he survived a plane crash in rural Alaska. "In the tradition of the late John Hartford," a reviewer from Missoula wrote recently. "Feels like a Ken Burns movie . . . Always recommended," a reviewer in the Austin Chronicle wrote. Ken Waldman is one part Mike Seeger, one part Utah Phillips, and all parts compelling one-of-a-kind artist.
