Lauren Oxford Music Guest of Honor
Lauren Oxford (known as Lauren Cox before tying the knot in April) is a twenty-six-year-old singer, writer of songs, multi-instrumentalist, and acolyte of the folk tradition. She stumbled into the wonderful world of filk by befriending Cat Faber and never looked back once she found her chosen family. This community has embraced, nurtured, and encouraged her at every turn, nominating her twice in a row for Best Writer/Composer on the 2018 and 2019 Pegasus ballot, and Best Performer in 2020 and 2021. Pandemic permitting, the plan is to record her (long overdue) debut album in June and release it at OVFF 2022, meaning CDs will be available at Windycon! Some of the filkers who recorded with her will also up on stage during her concert, and no one is more excited about this than she is.
