Consonance 2016 starts in just 5 days!
The SF Bay Area’s only Filk Convention.
Featuring Concerts, Workshops, Drum Circle and all night filking.
Program grid is posted here: http://consonance.org/program.html
This year’s Guests are:
Guests of Honor: Cheshire Moon
Cheshire Moon is the fanciful collaboration of trickster bird Lizzie Crowe and
crazed magician Eric Coleman.
International Interfilk Guest: Jela Schmidt
While she comes across as a quiet and serene person at first,
it does usually not take long until she dishes out her first unexpected
spot-on pun in a fun conversation. I tell you, she can pun in BOTH languages, it is scary
Special Guest: Kathleen Sloan
She tapes concerts and open filks, and craftily uses these tapes to mine
for the very best songs, which she learns and performs, spreading
filk gems throughout the community.
Toastmaster: Tim Griffin
Tim taught grades K-5for eighteen years, while writing and performing
fun educational music on the side. Over the years, the music grew into
a second full-time job.
