The Library Bards

The Library Bards are a nerd parody band consisting of Bonnie Gordon (ABC’s The Quest; Cartoon Network; Street Fighter V; Mega Man 11; Geek & Sundry) and Xander Jeanneret (TBS’ King of the Nerds; Announcer in Divekick, Sagas of Sundry; etc.). They take Top 40 hits and transform them into the nerdy versions they should have been in the first place! With their catchy tunes and nerdy lyrics, the @LibraryBards will be bringing you into the #BardLife in no time!

The Library Bards will perform twice at Dublin 2019.

The Doubleclicks are a folk-pop sibling duo, featuring clever lyrics about dinosaurs, literature, love and the Internet—with a cello, guitar, and meowing kitten keyboard.

Their songs and YouTube videos have been viewed over 4 million times and are frequently featured on BoingBoing, Kotaku, the Huffington Post, and on NPR shows “Live Wire” “All Things Acoustic” and “State of Wonder.”

John McDaid

John G. McDaid is a science fiction writer, folk/filk singer-songwriter, and freelance journalist from Rhode Island. A 1993 Clarion grad, he sold his first short story, the Sturgeon Award-winning “Jigoku no mokushiroku” to Asimov’s in 1995. Since retiring in 2016 from a career in corporate communications, he’s been writing full time and playing at venues around the Northeast US. In 2017, his songs won both the topical and “Iron Filker” contests at the Ohio Valley Filk Fest. Fiction and music are online at and he’s currently working on a WWII alternate history novel and an album of original songs.

Kerri-Ellen Kelly

Kerri-Ellen Kelly is the manager of (and singer in) vocal ensemble Court & Country (which has sung at midwest SF and filk conventions as well as Chicon, OVFF, FKO and Confluence). She is also a solo musician in her own right. In addition to singing as a mezzo soprano, she plays or is learning to play multiple instruments including horn, trombone, soprano recorder, bagpipes, baritone ukulele, guitar, violin and mandolin (at widely varying levels of competency). Her love of both research and early music have caused her to include numerous medieval and renaissance songs in her repertoire with a particular fondness for bawdy Elizabethan ballads (especially in her historical persona as Lady Margrett Norwoode). However, she also loves more modern music and filk tunes and writes her own original music. One of her original pieces was the third place winner in the 2017 Iron Filker contest at OVFF. Her name is a tongue twister waiting to happen; feel free to call her Kerri 🙂

Kerri-Ellen Kelly will be performing twice at Dublin 2019 in Warehouse 2.
