Ken Waldman has published six full-length poetry collections, a memoir, a children’s book and has released nine CDs, but that’s not all. This former professor has been on tour since 1995, fiddling through the 50 states.

Thursday will be Waldman’s first Columbia appearance. According to his website, he has wanted to come to Columbia for years and years. We are honored, Waldman. His performance is at the Columbia Public Library at 7 p.m. in the Friends Room.

Waldman, also known as Alaska’s Fiddling Poet, will be fiddling and telling stories. He combines old-time Appalachian style fiddling and stories from Alaska. If you enjoy traditional string-band music, poetry and stories about Alaska all wrapped into one, then this event is for you.
