Filk Hall of Fame

HoF Lapel Pins

A Filk Hall of Fame lapel pin will be provided to all Inductees. The development of this pin was made possible through a generous donation by Victoria Borean, daughter of Heather (one of the founders of FilKONtario), to ensure this project was initiated. It was Vickys idea. The first presentation took place at FilKONtario 21, in a ceremony immediately prior to the Filk Hall of Fame Concert.

On behalf of the FilKONtario Concom

FKO 24 Inductees

Talis Kimberley, Kathy Hamilton and Michael Longcor.

The Concom felt that we should share Volker's acceptance speech from the Induction Ceremony in 2013, as another example of what the Filk Community is all about.

The Filk Hall of Fame honours a group of individuals who have contributed to Filk over the years.  Some are performers whose names are on CD's in nearly every filker's collection.  Others are organizers, or facilitators, or people who helped filking grow. Photo: Cumulative Plaque

Read the citations to understand why these people have been chosen to be honoured by their peers.  The history page explains how the Filk Hall of Fame came into existence, and how it is run today. Click on one of the links above to view the Hall of Fame Inductees either by the year of induction, or in an alphabetical list. 

In 2003 Barry and Sally Childs-Helton gave such stirring acceptance speeches that we have included them here - please read "This is My Tribe".

If you know someone who deserves to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, please send in a nomination - it is only through the nominations that individuals can be inducted, as the judges' votes are based solely on the information in a person's nomination.

For more information, please see the Nomination Info page. You can submit your nomination online, or email hofdave2014 AT gmail DOT com no later than 2015 January 11.
