The Filk Music Club of New England

MASSFILC Homepage

Welcome to the MASSFILC site!

"What are you?" We're a Massachusetts-based club, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, that exists to sing and promote filk music.

"Filk music? What's that?" Many words have been spilled over that question, but a short answer is that it's the folk music of science fiction and fantasy fandom.

"What do you actually do?" We hold monthly meetings, with lots of singing and good conversation, which anyone may attend. We sell songbooks and T-shirts.

"Ooh! Sounds interesting! How can I get involved?" You're welcome to come to any of our meetings, whether you want to participate or just listen and converse. If you want to keep in touch with New England filkers and learn about our upcoming events, you can subscribe to one of our mailing lists. Meanwhile, feel free to explore our site.
