Filk songs are songs that are either old songs (either traditional medieval, or modern songs) with new words, or just brand new songs, relating to SCA activities and lifestyle or amusing medieval content. They are often sung at Bardic Circles, while getting drunk around campfires, or on very very long car trips to camping events. Some songs are incredibly witty and amusing, others are so awful they make your head bleed, but either way, it's a fun activity for SCAdians to get involved in.

Filk songs are also heard in amongst other communities and clubs, (eg. roleplaying, science-fiction/fantasy, choral), relating to their worlds and activities.

Fruitbat (aka Karl Faustus von Aachen) is a well-known Australian filkmeister.
