Filk and Other Musical Mayhem
Balticon is home to one of the East Coast’s strongest tracks of filk and fannish music, featuring a variety of concerts, panels, and workshops, plus open circles all three nights.
We’re excited to have a reunited Technical Difficulties 2.0 headlining our program. If you’ve been around the filk community for a while you’ve no doubt heard classics like “Lullaby for a Weary World”, “Ladyhawke”, and “Dairy Queen” – we look forward to TJ, Linda and Jean’s harmonies winging forth from the stage once more.
The concert line up includes:
- Technical Difficulties 2.0
- Jim Thorne
- Roberta Rogow
- Bob and Sue Esty
- Sarah Pinsker
- Maugorn the Stray
- Metricula and the Salacious Crumbles
- Devo Spice
The theme circles this year are on:
- Songs of Hope
- Songs of Stan Rogers and Gordon Lightfoot
- Classic Filk Sing-Along with projected lyrics
- Memorial Circle
For those who like to get up and move there will be a Renaissance Dance (with live music) and Hula Hooping
New to Balticon this year is a Filk Lounge (Room 6036), where you can hang out between programs, chat with performers, grab a quick snack, or rehearse a song.
