RANDOLPH — Ken Waldman travels as “Alaska’s Fiddling Poet” and he brings both art forms to the Esther Mesh Room of Chandler’s Upper Gallery at 7:30 p.m. May 11. Vermont musician Colin McCaffrey joins him. A cash bar will be available. The arts in Alaska take a back seat to environmental issues and the political scene, but the state has developed an interesting musical and literary culture. Waldman proudly wears his statehood on his sleeve. “Alaska’s Fiddling Poet” combines two very different art forms into one highly regarded act that weaves together old-time music with timeless storytelling.
Tickets are $16, $13 in advance; call 728-6464.
