Touring full-time since 1995, Ken Waldman has appeared at some of the continent's leading performing arts centers, concert series, festivals, universities, clubs, and more.

With an MFA in Creative Writing and eight published books, Ken can not only visit undergraduate and graduate writing classes, but his experience as both teacher and performer allows him to work in high schools, middle schools, and elementaries. This makes him ideal for residencies--in fact, he's led in-service workshops for teachers. Fall 2013, a nine-week tour included visits to 28 schools in four states, and contact with over 6,000 students.

Ken has been playing fiddle for 30 years. He plays traditional tunes authentically, has recorded over 100 original tunes, and brings band mates who are often headliners themselves. His fiddling and composition skills are praised in journals such as Fiddler Magazine, and he's a popular guest in music classes.

Solo, he can come as a visiting writer or storyteller, where he also plays fiddle, and he has developed a one-person show, Portrait of an Artist as Santa Claus.

While Ken can bring an accompanist or two for more intimate concert halls, his vast network of colleagues--which include many fine Canadian musicians--allows him to play main stage series. His ever-changing roots-music variety shows are designed for specific communities (and budgets), or else for special events, like December holiday programs, or for family shows or children's festivals. He also has an evening, Ken Waldman & Fiddle Summit, where he brings a troupe of fiddlers of varied styles and backgrounds.

"In the tradition of the late John Hartford." --The Missoulian

"Renegade Americana." --Denver Post
