Some (MP3) examples of our music

Echo's Children (Callie Hills and Cat Faber) was an acoustic duo that performed mostly at science fiction conventions. We wrote, arranged, and performed original songs about subjects ranging from science fiction through science and technology to out-and-out fantasy. More information about this sort of music (called "filk" music) is available at Julia West's Web site.

Echo's Children Songbook Now Available

A book of the majority of Echo's Children's songs is now available; see the CD page for details.

So what's new here?

Upcoming appearances

Echo's Children was a Pacific Northwest based duo who mainly performed at science fiction conventions from 1997-2003. Cat is now living in east Tennessee; Callie moved from Oregon to Seattle, Washington. Each remains active in filk music in her region.

  • Callie will be attending OryCon, in Portland, Oregon, in mid-November.
