A Michigan native who was transplanted to Germany, Steve Macdonald has been performing filk and folk since the early 80's. He found the filk community in 1992, was an early Interfilk Guest, and he has been honored to serve as a GoH at over 30 conventions over the following years.

He was inducted into the Filk Hall of Fame in 2006.

In September 2006, he moved to Germany to marry fellow filker Katy Dröge (now Katy Dröge-Macdonald. And yes, it's just as cool as you think it is.)

Steve is a Fan of Many Projects. In January 2021 he finally released the WorlDream online for its 20th anniversary. In early 2003, he began the process of restructuring the Pegasus Awards, and continues to this day as a co-administrator together with Erica Neely and the rest of the Pegasus Committee. He also maintains the Pegasus Nominees and OVFF websites.

In 2004, he began recording his fourth album of all-original material; but little things like moving to Germany interrupted the process (among other things). He expects to be releasing this album, titled Wanderer, at OVFF in 2022. Yes, it has wandered a bit through time and several studios to get completed.

In addition to his solo efforts, Steve also performs together with Katy as the duo Twotonic. Their first album, Rowan & Storm was released at OVFF in 2014. Steve also sings together with Katy and friends Eva and Rafael Van Daele-Hunt in 'Barbership', the world's first filk barbershop quartet. And he occasionally performs in 'DKSM', a trio together with Katy and Marilisa Valtazanou.

On top of that, together with Sibylle Machat Steve co-founded DFDF (Das Frühlingsfest der Filksmusik) in 2009.

You can find more information on Steve (though, if you've read this, you pretty much know everything) at his irregularly updated website, His albums and songbooks are now available on Bandcamp.
