“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.
And there will be plenty of music of all kinds here at Capricon. We’ll kick off our music programming in the Gingerbread Pudding Café on Friday afternoon with a full slate of concerts.
On Saturday afternoon, it’s back to the Gingerbread Pudding Café for more concerts. Finally, we’ll have another late night open music circle running until the wee hours of the morning.
Sunday, back in the Gingerbread Pudding Café, join us for Toast and Jam, where we will have real toast, real jam, and a real musical jam session. There are few things more fun than making music with others – come on by and join the party. Just remember that sticky fingers are not good for fretboards, keyboards, or drums.
