Windycon Music

We have heroic bards engaged to play and sing their tales of mighty deeds for you all weekend! Besides our fantastic Music Guest of Honor, Jen Midkiff, our music track includes a mix of local and non-local performers who also offer a few theme circles and workshops or panels on music and performance-related topics. Concerts are Friday night, all day Saturday, and Sunday before closing ceremonies. Open music circles start at 10pm on Friday and Saturday night, and we have a Dead Dog Circle starting at 3pm on Sunday and going until the wee hours (or the last person drops from exhaustion).

We are still looking for a few performers to fill our concert slots. If you are interested, contact music at windycon dot org with a brief description of your performance and any links to a website, social media page, or videos of you/your group. Please be aware that Windycon is a family-friendly convention. Also be aware that we cannot compensate or provide memberships for performers, but you may earn a badge reimbursement after the con for participation in a concert plus several other programming items (need not be music-related).

We are also looking for ideas for a few music-related panels or workshops – basic music theory? Using a microphone well? Speed songwriting? Fixing "broken" songs? What would YOU enjoy learning or doing or facilitating? Let us know by sending your ideas to music at windycon dot org by early July.
