If you�re interested in either listening to or making music here at Camp Capricon, there will be plenty of chances. Start on Thursday night with a return performance by Howling Beagle, followed by an open filk circle.

On Friday, we�ll have a variety of performances in the Capricon Cafe, including an acoustic set from our filk guests, Barry and Sally Childs-Helton. In the evening, we�re looking forward to hearing from Tom Smith, the World�s Fastest Filker, as he returns to our Capricon music stage. Later Friday night, we�ll be having another open filk circle.

On Saturday, Sally Childs-Helton will be leading a drum workshop. At Closing Ceremonies on Sunday, our drummers will have a chance to show off what they�ve learned. Later on Saturday afternoon, Barry Childs-Helton will lead a guitar workshop for us. If you�re interested in picking up tips from two of the finest performers in fandom, you�ll want to catch one or both of these workshops.

Also on Saturday afternoon, we�ll have more performances in the Capricon Cafe, including solo performances by members of Wild Mercy and others who I�m sure you�ll enjoy. Saturday night, Wild Mercy returns to Capricon with a special performance of Barry Childs-Helton�s "Dream of a Far Light" song cycle. Right after the concert, we�ll rearrange the room and Barry will lead folks in a jam session that runs right into the regular filk circle.
