Ken Waldman author's photo

A twenty-year resident of Alaska, Ken Waldman has made his living the past decade touring North America as "Alaska's Fiddling Poet." He has published poems and stories in a variety of national journals, and is the author of two full-length collections, Nome Poems (West End Press, 2000) and To Live on this Earth (West End Press, 2002). His five CDs, A Week in Eek, Burnt Down House, Music Party, All Originals, All Traditionals, and Fiddling Poets on Parade, mix poetry with old-time fiddle and banjo.

A college professor for several years, Waldman has been a poet-in-the-schools in over twenty states, and has performed in hundreds of venues, large and small, from the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage in Washington, D.C., to the Hopson Middle School in Barrow, Alaska. He holds a MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Alaska in Fairbanks. And all that stuff about the airplane crash is true.
