Down the Road


Jerry Hagins will put a banjo together before your eyes and will then play it. Ken Waldman will share a new poem about banjo-building, will talk, tell a few stories, read a few more poems, play some fiddle tunes, and await Jerry's completed fiddle. A one-of-a-kind event. When the venue is 100% confirmed, we'll let you know. If it's outdoors, it'll depend on winter weather.


I'll be joining forces with Danielle Devlin of Canis Major Music to co-produce this year's showcase. It'll be similar to and different than prior years. We'll have some fun--eight great acts. Ken Waldman & Ilan Moss, Sean Dagher, Jefferson Hamer with Rob Jost, Jason Anick Acoustic Trio, Tamar Korn joined by Kornucopia, Yacouba Sissoko, Bad Penny Pleasuremakers, Tamar Ilana Duo. If you have an APAP badge you're our guest. Otherwise, it's a $60 ticket.


Stage Door Series

Columbia Theatre, Longview WA

I'll have an accompanist or two for a Ken Waldman & The Wild Ones show, a Stage Door series offering at the historic Columbia Theatre in Longview. Guaranteed: not only a stellar accompanist or two, but lots of fun, inspiration, and surprises.


Indiana matinee show

The Strand Theatre, Shelbyville IN

More details as I have them, but I'll be joined by a wonderful accompanist or two. And a fine local Shelbyville musician, Kit Haymond, will be featured at some point. If you've been to a few of my shows, you know how these things can go. The Strand is a beautiful place. This show will be a National Poetry Month blast. Yes, more details as I have them!


West Virginia date

The River House, Capon Bridge WV

It looks like I'll be visiting a school on Friday, offer a writing workshop sometime Saturday, and do a show with an accompanist or two on Saturday night. The River House is super excellent, and I really look forward to all of this. More details as I have them.
