I got involved in music by listening to filkers such as Urban Tapestry and Ookla the Mok, then starting to participate after my husband, Phil Mills, became a prolific filk song-writer. I was president of the Filk Society of Upper Canada, and co-chaired FilKONtario 23 in April 2013. I also brought a filk music category into the Prix Auroras, to recognize excellent musical works by creative Canadians in fandom. Phil and I host filk circles and I've been part of filk circles and conventions in various provinces and states. I drum a little and work to improve my singing. I have a Zoom concert coming up July 11 so may not start writing until after that.
