BC50.2 – Interview with Bill and Gretchen Roper

posted in: Balticon 50, Filk, Interview | 1

roperbgInterview time again! Next up, we have this year’s musical guests, filk artists Bill and Gretchen Roper.

Bill has been active in writing, recording, performing, and publishing filk music for over 20 years. His particular sense of humor and his writing style have earned him the nickname “the Grim Roper”. If Bill’s singing alone, it’s not going to be good for the person he’s singing about.

Gretchen has likewise been promoting filk for over 20 years, but when her voice enters the music, things take a decidedly comical bent.
