Marcon is prould to have Dandelion Wine as our Filk Guest of Honor for Marcon 53 on May 11-13 at the Hyatt Regency Columbus.

While their music ranges from contemporary folk to filk, and boasts many songs of nature, both on our planet, and on others, they are a true science fiction convention group, as they began their existance at a sci-fi convention in 1985.
