Filk

Down in the Tropics of Capricon, the music programming is just starting to jell in the tropical warmth, so not everything is quite as solid as it will be in a few days. But we’re staying chill and can let you know what we’re planning, just as long as you remember to check the program for updates.

Concerts! There will be concerts lined up on Friday and Saturday afternoon in the Capricon Café. There’s no place better to sit back, unwind, and listen to music. And on Sunday morning, join us there for our annual Toast and Jam session, with real toast, real jam, and a real musical jam where you can stretch your musical muscles out after a long weekend of fun.

On Friday and Saturday evening on the Main Stage, we’re expecting to hear from SpaceTime Theater, with their brand of science-fiction improvisational comedy. Around that, we’ll welcome the return of the Thieving Magpies (which will include at least Debbie Gates, Jen Midkiff, Amy McNally, and Bill Roper – and possibly others) in a concert that will lean heavily on the music of Jimmy Buffett, because what could be better than chilling out like a Parrothead in the tropics? We also expect the Klingon Pop Warrior, who will be singing a variety of popular songs in the original Klingon. (My research indicates that the Klingon home planet is somewhere in the Zodiacal constellation of Leo, making this entirely appropriate for the tropics.) And we’ve got at least one other surprise planned just as soon as we recover from our post-Thanksgiving comas and lock everything down.

And after the concerts finish on the Main Stage on Friday and Saturday nights, we’ll have open filking, where everyone has a chance to get out their instruments and their voices and come join in singing in the circle.

It’s a weekend full of music and fun! We’ll look forward to seeing you!
