Ari Hest

Emily Berrichoa

Ari Hest was the opener for UAF Summer Session's concert with Judy Collins last year and he really connected with the audience. So much so that he was invited back to headline this year's concert. Hest has a knack for song lyrics and the guitar chops to draw attention and keep it. Songs of social justice, struggle and challenge add to the connection the listener feels when listening to singer/songwriter Ari Hest.
