Mary Crowell has been playing piano by ear since she was eight, and composed her first peice of music (for clarinet) in 7th grade. She has a D.M.A., and claims that she kept sane while spending all that time hitting the books, by writing songs that weren't to set theory. This is how she came to write torch songs about gaming. After she played "Magnus Retail" (about one of her husbands icky NPC alchemists), in a band in a LARP, two of her friends immediately explained filk to her, had her listen to some Tom Smith songs, they also paid her way to GAFfilk 2001.
Mary Crowell is an excellent singer and keyboard wizard. She also plays the clarinet and harmonica, and has just started taking guitar lessons. She made such a good impression at her filk debut, that the next year GaFilk asked her to be the featured performer at the banquet.
She can befound at the monthly GaFilk housefilks as well as the GaFilk convention and OVFF. She also has a concert at Confulence in July.
The purpose of the featured filker section to enable deserving filkers without websites of their own to get a little web exposure. I would like to feature both fairly well known filkers and totally obscure filkers. Unfortunately, if a filker is obscure, I probably do not know about them, and therefore cannot feature them. Please think over the people you know who come to local housefilks or filk at conventions. Do they have a web page? If not, tell me about them! Do you have a webpage? If not, tell me about yourself!
