Performing Arts Host Fiddling Poet

Alaska's Fiddling Poet will return to LSU Eunice as part of the university's Performing Arts Series. Ken Waldman will perform at LSU Eunice on Thursday, September 29 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Rooms 127 of the Acadian Center. He will also be the guest poet at LSU Eunice's Louisiana Review Reading Series at Café Mosaic at 7 p.m.

A former college professor, Waldman has had published six full-length poetry collections, a memoir, a children's book, and has released nine CDs that combine old-time Appalachian-style string-band music with original poetry. Since 1995 he's toured full-time, performing at some of the nation's leading universities, festivals, arts centers, and clubs. Over 400 of his poems and stories have appeared in such magazines as Beloit Poetry Journal, Quarterly West, and Yankee.

Admission is free to both events.

In October, LSU Eunice Performing Arts will host David Burgess, who has been recognized musicians and critics worldwide as one today's outstanding guitarists.
