TRUMP SONNETS, VOLUME 1, The Alaskan Fiddlin' Poet Ken Waldman Brings It from the Far North

Sunday, May 14, 3 PM:  Ken Waldman, Alaskan Fiddling Poet, returns to Tsunami after too long a hiatus, with a book of Sonnets about the man whose name we will not mention.  The title of the book is “Trump Sonnets, Volume 1.”

November 9, 2016, incredulous at ______ _____’s victory, Alaskan Fiddling Poet, Ken Waldman, scribbled: You make George W. seem a statesman—your opening trick, which he made into the first line and a half of a sonnet. A week later, Waldman wrote two more _____-inspired sonnets. He ended up processing ______ _____’s unlikely rise to power by writing 71 sonnets in the first 50 days after the 2016 presidential election. 41 were in the voice of _____; the other 30 were addressed to him. The result: an ambitious, satirical look at current events.

 Ken Waldman has six previous poetry collections, a memoir, a kids' book, and nine CDs that combine original poetry with Appalachian-style string-band music and Alaska-set storytelling. Since 1995 he's been a full-time touring artist, appearing in a wide range of venues for a wide range of audiences. www.kenwaldman.com.  Ken will have his fiddle along.  Come give a listen.
