Ken Waldman to share stories of the Alaskan frontier through music

Wed Jun 15, 2022


The Summer Children’s Series at The Clarion at Brazosport College gets into high gear on Wednesday, June 22, when Ken Waldman and the Wild Ones takes the stage with a high-energy show filled with string-band music and plenty of storytelling.

The performance begins at 10 a.m. and tickets are $5.

All the way from Anchorage, Alaska, Ken Waldman is a true original. Through his fiddling and poetry, Waldman brings to Texas his stories about life in the Alaskan frontier, which are as adventurous and grand as the Alaskan tundra. He will be joined by Houston banjo player Hannah Underwood, a former pre-school music teacher.

With more than 40 years of experience on the fiddle, Waldman has released nine CDs of old-time Appalachian-style, string-band music, including two for children.

Everyone in attendance should expect fun, surprises and first-class Appalachian-style old-time fiddling.

The Ken Waldman and the Wild Ones show is the second of four events in this season’s Summer Series. Other upcoming performances include Tom’s Fun Band on June 29 and Andyroo and the Andyrooniverse on July 13. All events are $5 per person.
