“Filk” has been described as the folk music of the science-fiction fan community.
It’s a mixture of song parodies and original music, humorous and serious, about
subjects like science fiction, fantasy, computers, cats, politics, the space
programme, books, movies, TV shows, love, war, death…
Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Betsy is a versatile cellist and
composer who performs solo and with many different groups. Betsy won the Best
Performer Pegasus Award in 2012, and we can’t wait to hear her at
Long-time fan and filker Ωmega has been creating the Sam Award
statuettes for many years.
As it is our 30th Anniversary, we are delighted to celebrate
Ωmega’s contributions to the community and to have a chance to
look back on her marvelous creations over the years.
Marilisa was sneakily lured into filk in 2001 by her friend Peter, who uttered the irresistible phrase "I have a harp in my room". Since then, she has performed with a number of bands and ensembles, chaired the 26th UK filk convention, and attended filk cons in four countries. She can be identified as the concom member shlepping around an unnecessary number of instruments while chasing after her small child.
Jackie has hardly paused for breath between being the guest of honour at Quoi De Neuf and taking on committee duties for Enharmonicon. Jackie found filk about eight years ago, and has since performed in a variety of filk musicals, sung with the nMC, been an Interfilk guest in Seattle, and been on the committee for Semibreve. A scientist, operatic soprano, multi-instrumentalist, and serial volunteer, Jackie can be identified by her multi-coloured hair and assortment of unusual pets.
Emily came to Filk in 2001 and hasn’t managed to shake it off since.
She is very excited to be involved in running the 30th annual UK Filk Con in her own 30th year.
She can usually be identified by her brightly coloured dresses and pockets full of theatre stubs.
KT unwittingly wandered into Filk at a roleplaying convention and
never quite left. Like Emily, KT has the dubious pleasure of sharing the
con’s 30th year with her own… the more excuses for cake the better!
She can usually be identified by trailing crochet yarn and/or the Dark
Looming Presence often beside her.
