I have been remiss in promoting Contata
. Seeing as I'm deputy con chair, it's time to rectify that.
What is Contata? Contata is the New York version of NEfilk, the annual Northeast Floating Filk Convention (which rotates between the NY area, the Boston area and the Washington area). The con will be from June 20 to 22 at the Parsippany Hilton, in Parsipanny, NJ.
Who are the guests? Well, the Guest of Honor is Heather Dale
/. The toastmaster is Tom Smith
, the listener guest is Crystal Paul, and the Interfilk guests are Louie and Nate Bucklin
. I suspect that if you are into filk in the least, you know some or all of these names. And that you are saying to yourself, "wow, I love Mordred's Lullaby
" and "what new songs will Tom have up his sleeve?" and "I've always wanted to see the Bucklins live" and "was does Crystal have in mind for her slot?" and "what am I doing June 20 through 22?"
We have a full slate of programming planned, including concerts by voices familiar and new, kids' activities (including a kiddie concert and a movie room), the one and only Contata Kosher Con Suite, and more! A progress report is in progress, and will tell you even more (once it's done and I link to it).
Feel free to follow the links and to ask me any questions you might have about the con. (Please note that after this post, all future entries on the con will be limited to those on my filk filter, so if you are not on the filter yet and want to be, let me know.)
I hope to see as many of you as possible at the con!! The concom assures the public a splendid time will be had by all.
