Afterglow Festival is proud to present JOSEPH KECKLER in SONGS FROM THE EDGE OF A FLAT WORLD. Calling on a powerful and versatile voice, Joseph Keckler returns to the Afterglow Festival to unleash an evening of original musical works ahead of his related book Dragon at the Edge of a Flat World. Delivering absurd arias about everyday life as well as otherworldly ballads about placeless wanderers, he twists through terrain both humorous and haunting.
“Singer with a range that shatters the conventional boundaries…The sensibility of a magician, a tricksters dark humor and a formidable musical and literary erudition. Major vocal talent” Stephen Holden, The New York Times
“Tantalizing dynamic with magnetism and poise is so high that he seems to have been born onstage.” The Village Voice
“Riveting and beautifully absurd, Keckler singlehandedly has the power and chops to legitimately modernize a dying art form.” Huffington Post
