"Footloose Filkers" as such are identified and decided upon by the FF

For the 24th British Filk Convention (Duple Time) to be held in Grantham

Germany. I am a little crazy, music is an important part of my life and

We hope you will enjoy meeting and listening to him and we look forward
to seeing Sebastian at Duple Time.
