Conflikt’s room block has been extended to January 22nd, so if you’ve been putting off that decision to get one and come up for the fun, you’re still in. Use code CON9 – more information at the Conflikt website.
Karen Junker informs us that We Are ALL SF Con is looking for someone to run a Filk room during their inaugural weekend, Nov. 4-6, 2016, in Ocean Shores, Washington. They have quite the list of guests attending, particularly for a first year event. Contact Kami Miller, Volunteer Coordinator, if you’re interested in helping out, or know someone who is.
Hey look, another news post already!
- Like us, Tom Smith has his website back together.
- GAFilk happened last weekend. Anybody want to write a con report?
- Norwescon has gone through a couple of concerts leads this year – currently it’s back in the hands of their Special Events manager, Alan Bond. Wish him luck. Daytime programming is in the very good hands of Jen Kilmer.
- Consonance 2016 is March 4-6, 2016 at the Crowne Plaza Silicon Valley, in Milpitas CA. We’ll add it to the events list.
That’s it for the moment. As always, send us your events! We’ll share them along.
Conflikt 2016 – the ninth Conflikt – has published their second Progress Report. The convention is scheduled for January 29-31, 2016 in Sea-Tac, Washington; guests are TJ & Mitchell Burnside Clapp (GoH), Dara Korra’ti (Solarbird of Crime and the Forces of Evil), and Interfilk guest Jackie Mitchell, from the United Kingdom.
As you may have noticed, the site has gone a while without updates. Well, we’re back now, with a more mobile-responsive site, and with a new back-end configuration which will hopefully make administration less bothersome.
We’ve also got a couple of news items queued up, so we’ll get those out next.
The second album from Leannan Sidhe, Mine to Love, has been released on Bandcamp. All songs are playable on Bandcamp except for the cover of Phoenix’s “King of Elfland’s Daughter,” due to copyright restrictions.
On this release, Leannan Sidhe are Shanti Singleton, Alexander James Adams, Betsy Tinney, Mickey Phoenix, S.J. Tucker, Rob Lindfors, Dara Korra’ti, Sunnie Larson, and Wednesday Phoenix, making it a particularly large instantiation of the band.
The album was recorded at PhantaSea Studios and Supervillian Studios, with engineering by Alexander James Adams and Dara Korra’ti, and mastering by Endless Creations.
Prior Conflikt GoH Talis Kimberly has released Songs for the Wood, a six-song EP on Bandcamp for a mere £3. It’s a fundraiser to help her village to purchase the adjacent woodland known as Kings Farm Wood, and safeguard it for the community. The project is being administered by the Wroughton Parish Council and the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust. Details if you want them, on the Bandcamp page.
New video! “Carry Ons.” Jeff and Maya, of course, with Tony Fabris popping in for background vocals. 😀
