About

Future Folk come from the planet Hondo, a planet where music doesn’t exist.  When they landed on Earth, they liked music so much they decided to stay and form FUTURE FOLK.

  5. I am so epically impressed. I loved your film so much, I almost lost the feeling in my head. (That only happens when I really like stuff). The Viking people of Norway salute you.

  7. General, in the part of the movie when you introduced the Mighty Kevin to Earth music and set him on the path to help save Hondo and the Earth, you played on your banjo many famous Terran Tunes. Given the release of a movie this summer concerning video games being used against Earth in intergalactic warfare, I am concerned at what I detect to be part of a video game ditty deftly hidden within your music. It distresses me greatly that other planets not as amicably disposed to Earth as Hondo is might turn your tunes against both Hondo *and* Earth! Please reassure me that Hondo’s Mightiest General has not made such a tactical error!

  18. This is a Message from Kroll, First Governor of Hondo. Take heed:

    Earthlings,

    You fools. So, you thought you could defeat Hondo with your disease called, “Music?” When Mighty Kevin returned to Hondo with his dancing earth wench, ”Carmen,” we welcomed him as a savior, a hero. He was celebrated from the great Sulfur Pits of Militin to the Red Moon, Anturis. At first, Hondonians were amused by “Music,” but then it spread and became an epidemic. Innocents convulsed, writhing with what you may call “Tango.” It is sorrowful to see what had been healthy, happy Hondonians, now gyrating and “singing,” unable to function in our society. The fabrics of our society are threatened. There seems no cure for Music. That’s why we have quarantined Mighty Kevin and his alien wench. The Hondonian Government will submit them for medical experimentation in hopes of discovering a way to end music.Thousands of other Hondonians are being rounded up this very minute to be quarantined from the general public before the disease you call “music” becomes a pandemic. Some have suggested destroying the infected ones, so as to save the planet.

    Earthlings, what you have done is an act of War. We will retaliate. Transport ships are boarding as I give this admonition. To avoid immediate and total annihilation, you must return the traitor, General Trius for execution.

    General, you must pay for your crimes. We have also quarantined your Mother and younger sister, Mythius. They will be released upon your return, but you must act quickly.

    Earth has 48 of your earth hours to comply. Return the traitor now, or face total destruction. Do not doubt our resolution. We will extract revenge. We have more flesh eating virus at our disposal and we will use if necesssary. Do not doubt our resolution.

    When our transport ships arrive, you will have no more “Music.” As one of your diseased songs says, it will be “The Day that Music Died.” If there remains any such infection, contagion, you will meet swift and final retribution.

    First Governor,
    Kroll.

  19. Nils, my wife and I caught your movie on Netflix. We loved it. She has downloaded songs from Spotify. I bought a DVD and sent it to my sister and her family, and I bought another for us. We are disappointed that you do mot have a sequel. Can I offer a story line? No financial obligation. I just want to see another adventure with General Trius and Mighty Kevin again.

  20. Nil, my wife and I fell in love with The history of Future Folk. We saw it on Netflix, then my wife downloaded your music from Spotify.I bought one of your DVDs for my sister and her family, and another for us. We are sad that there has not been a sequel. We love General Trius and Mighty Kevin and want to watch another adventure. May I present you with a proposed storyline? There is no financial obligation. This is a genuine fan mail. If so, I will post it on Youtube and send you a link. Thanks for sharing great music and humor.
