Coming Events in Oriental and in and near Pamlico County

Fiddler Ken Waldman Nov 23

Alaska has a “Fiddling Poet.” His name is Ken Waldman – and he performs at Oriental’s Old Theater November 23, 7:30p. He’s bringing his group The Secret Visitors, which features Western NC multi-instrumentalist, Adam Tanner. Waldman’s appearance is part of a longer residency which includes a visit to local schools.

Ken Waldman combines Appalachian-style string-band music, original poetry, and Alaska-set storytelling for a performance uniquely his. He has eleven books & nine CDs. Waldman has played venues ranging from the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage to the Woodford Folk Festival in Queensland, Australia. Reviewers have compared his stage show to John Hartford and Garrison Keillor.

Accompanying Waldman will be Bryan and Barbara Blake, leaders of the Unknown Tongues, a Cajun band from Carteret County; Lizzie Thompson, a cellist, from Northern California; and Adam Tanner, an instructor at the bluegrass and old-time music program at Eastern Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee. A mandolin player, fiddler, and guitarist, Tanner has toured throughout the United States and Europe with bands such as The Crooked Jades and Hunger Mountain Boys.

General Admission $20, discounts available for Old Theater members, Military and Students with ID. Tickets at Nautical Wheelers in Oriental; and at The Old Theater Box Office on performance night. Available online at www.oldtheater.org – click here.
