Ken Waldman & The Wild Ones

Ken Waldman & The Wild Ones

Ken Waldman combines Appalachian-style string-band music, original poetry, and Alaska-set storytelling for a performance uniquely his. He has twenty books (including sixteen full-length poetry collections), twelve CDs, and since 1995 has appeared at the widest range of concert series, festivals, and clubs, from the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage to the famed Dodge Poetry Festival to the Woodford Folk Festival in Queensland, Australia. Reviewers have compared his stage show to John Hartford and Garrison Keillor. He'll be joined by Tacoma banjo player, Rich Kuras, long-time Northwest fixture as both a banjo player and dance caller.

The Denver Post has called Ken Waldman's shows "Renegade Americana" and according to The Austin Chronicle, his appearances are "Like a Ken Burns movie . . . Always recommended." Ken Waldman promises an evening that's not only fun, inspiring, and wild-from raucous fiddle and banjo duo pieces to original waltzes to surprise guests-but is also a soundtrack to a journey from Portland to the Real Alaska via Cajun Country, and, really, anywhere the Whole Grain Loafers take you (and Waldman himself will be sharing poems that will appeal to anyone with an interest in fiddle music or Alaska).
