Guest of Honor: Summer Russell

Summer Russell first stepped across the filk veil at OVFF in 2014. She brought along a menagerie of fandoms, a bundle of bardic tradition, and a little fairy dust from the road. She has been received with a warm welcome on convention stages and a home in the magic circles, as well as some life-changing kindness along the way.

She sings from the heart about stories and characters that move and inspire her, about wonders that are and those that might be. An ambitious songwriter with deep roots in folk music, she works and plays with palettes from pop and rock to bluegrass to splashes of reggae. She has lived in a lot of places, but mostly near water.
