But it was awesome! Thank you, Jon & CC! Thank you, Ms. Helen Myers. And thank you, Ms. Mary Avara, for letting us use Dancenter studio for the week so we had enough room to dance BIG, as Jon says.
Below is a screenshot of us on the last day of class. We've covered the names and faces of the other participants, not knowing if they'd be cool with being on our website. If you want to be included, just email us at email@example.com or DM us on Instagram @thefolkvillains You can even leave a comment below! We'll create another version of this screenshot to get your mug on there! We knew Jon & CC wouldn't mind; they're FVans now! (And we can't actually believe that's true...THE Jon Lehrer and THE Cristiana Cavallo are FVans...pinch us...)
BIG SHOCKER to the little Folk Villains who were barely a band one year ago: Virtual Maine Fiddle Camp selected ANOTHER one of our videos for another concert. We couldn't be more honored because these MFCers are both talented and kind! Not to mention hilarious!
We don't remember exactly how long the VMFC Camper Concert is but, much like the VMFC Virtual Variety Show, we'd just sit down to dinner and let these good people from Maine entertain you! Jokes and stories and recipes and, above all, MUSIC!
If you need to find The FV right away, click on #15 in the playlist (which is actually listed as "7"). Then click on #16 in the playlist, and you'll find your favorite swampband playing "Mrs. Galvin's Jig," which we ALSO learned from MFC at a separate workshop with Mr. Alden Robinson.
Thank you for including us TWICE! You really make us feel like we are a part of MFC, like those who have been coming for years. Again, thanks for that warm welcome!
Last night and all day today, we have been villainizing Virtual Maine Fiddle Camp. What a WONDERFUL group of people! So welcoming. So talented. So silly. We feel right at home!
This evening, they put on a Virtual Variety Show on YouTube. To participate, you had to submit a video. Luckily, they selected us! The Folk Villains' video begins at about 12:30...as in 12min & 30sec into the video. But if we were you, we'd sit down to dinner, prop up a laptop, and listen to the Virtual Maine Fiddle Camp Virtual Variety Show while you eat. There's over an hour's worth of fantastic folk music and silly jokes.
Just look at the kind comments that other Maine Fiddle Campers made about us during the live chat. Thank you, Mr. Doug Protsik, Mr. Neil Pearlman, and MFC! Thank you, Mr. Alden Robinson, Mrs. Ellen Gawler, Ms. Helen Newell, Mr. Glen Loper, & Ms Jennifer Armstrong!
Hopefully, in 2021, we will be out of quarantine and maskless and attending MFC in person!
