Together, Ken Waldman and Willi Carlisle, either as a duo, or with accompanists they sometimes bring,
offer a show that's fun, inspiring, and full of surprises. Spring 2019 they toured from California to Alaska,
playing eleven dates in a wide range of settings, from performing arts centers to school day matinee
series to festivals to concert series to clubs.
