As a proud sponsor of this year’s Northern Appalachian Folk
Festival to be held in Downtown Indiana September 9-11, 2016, we will present a
free pre-opening concert September 8. The concert will feature fiddler,
composer, and writer Ken Waldman and a few close friends. For a grand
finale, he will add several local musicians to the mix.
Waldman has drawn on his 30 years in Alaska to produce poems, stories,
and fiddle tunes that combine into a performance uniquely his. Since
1995, he has toured full-time performing at some of the nation’s leading
universities, festivals, arts centers, and clubs. He has nine CDs to
his credit that mix Appalachian-style string-band music with original
In addition, he has written eight books which include six poetry
collections, a memoir, and a children’s book. For his Indiana
engagement, he will be creating some original poetry and collaborating with a few fellow Appalachian-influenced professional musicians to offer up a one-of-a-kind performance.
This concert is free and will be followed by a post community jam Upstairs at the Coney ($10 donation)
