Ever since we met
we have been playing FILK together. Roughly speaking we divide the "labour"
up into Ju being the songwriter and Katy being the performer. But this
is only half the truth because Katy also writes songs and Ju also sings
and performs. In fact we like doing things together and the harmony we
sing is the harmony we feel. We even share songs.
In 2004, we were honoured with being inducted into the Filk Hall of Fame ... which left us both very happy and a little speechless. We shall continue to give back to the filk community!
We should also mention Bear. He is our techie and sometime percussionist. He also happens to be Ju's husband. Very handy to have a techie husband if you are an amateur musician.
