“What manner of strange beasts are these that sit in circles late at night and sing songs to tunes both
familiar and new?”
“Oh, don’t worry. That’s just the filkers.”
Filk is the music of science-fiction fandom, ranging from funny to serious, from folk to rock to rap and
beyond. As a group, filkers are nothing if not eclectic.
We expect to have a full range of filk for you at Capricon 39. Our programming is still in the “the Jell-O
has not set yet” stage, but you can expect to find a concert by our talented Music Guest of Honor,
Carrie Dahlby, on Saturday night – and more music across Friday and Saturday evening as the program
On Friday and Saturday afternoon, come and relax in the Gingerbread Pudding Café, a lovely
coffeehouse space that is ideal for intimate performances.
And on Sunday morning, join us for Toast and Jam, where you will find real toast, real jam, and a real
musical jam where you’ll have a chance to pull out your instrument and join the fun. Just remember
that sticky fingers are not good for fretboards, keyboards, or drums.
We’ll look forward to seeing you there!
And stay tuned for more info!
