Filker and actor Michael Liebmann passed away on July 26, 2016, due to complications from surgery. He was a native New Yorker who had lived in New York, in California and finally in Atlanta, Georgia. He was a graduate of California State University with a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Business Administration (Accounting suboption). He worked as a legal secretary. He was also a veteran, having served in the United States Navy from 1979 to 1984.

Additionally, he was instrumental in starting GAFilk, a filking convention in the Atlanta area which has been going on since 1999, and he was known as a vendor of filk and Celtic music at local highland games and Celtic festivals.
