Biography


A new culture needs a new music. From that unique intermingling of science fiction fandom and pagan revival that emerged from the ferment of the sixties come these classic examples of "Bardic Magick," performed by the inimitable Leslie Fish, and ably supported by Kristoph Klover, Margaret Davis and a stellar crew of fellow musicians.

Leslie has been part of the movement since Isaac Bonewits was doing ceremonies in Don Simpson's living room in Berkeley. Inspired in style and sensibility by Woody Guthrie, she gives us the music of a new folk community. Whether one takes the old gods as faith or fiction, these songs hold insights we need. Here you'll find myth and magic, a sense of wonder and a sense of humor, and threading through the lyrics the sometimes ominous awareness that not all legends stay safely in the past.

- Diana L. Paxson

Filk Music

Leslie is one of the first and forremost "Filk" musicians. Filk is a musical culture, genre, and community tied to science fiction/fantasy fandom and a type of fan labor. The genre has been active since the early 1950s, and played primarily since the mid-1970s. The term (originally a typographical error) predates 1955. [wiki]
