This year's Friends of Filk guest is Telynor, AKA John and Anna Peekstok, a musical duo from Seattle who have appeared at numerous Northwest conventions. Here's what they have to say about themselves:

"We specialize in progressive arrangements of traditional folk and early music on a variety of instruments including hurdy-gurdy, cittern, Celtic harp, mountain dulcimer, nyckelharpa, didjeridu, synthesizer, and voice.

"Variety and cross-cultural pollination have been our hallmarks since we started playing together in 1984. Our repertoire comes primarily from the British Isles, France, and Appalachia, and ranges from truly ancient pieces to originals composed in the styles of traditional folk music.

"We've recorded three albums (two are still in print), published a song book, done some touring on the West Coast (including British Columbia), and done studio work for local and national recording artists."
