FALCON RIDGE 2020 SHARE & SHELTER IN PLACE FEST
We will start the VIRTUAL SHOW on Thurs July 30, going each day of the 2020 fest dates thru Sun Aug 2. It will be archived for replay & will include day by day programming, from Thurs Pre-Fest Tastings, Lounge Stage, the Grassy Hill Emerging Artist Showcase and all of our confirmed artists in one way or another, along with some archival footage, special messages from long time vendors, radio sponsors, dancers, campers, former artists and fest friends of all stripe.
We have put together a team to produce and edit video and will invite all 2020 confirmed artists plus a few special guests to participate, gonna be a big job and in some ways, am very glad to be so, so, so busy.
And as mentioned THE GRASSY HILL EMERGING ARTIST SHOWCASE will be part of the online festivities, deadline to apply is next Weds June 10. Info and application avail at
We will take down the TICKET ORDER page shortly, many of you have asked that we leave it a few more days so you can still buy a tix as a way of supporting the fest thru this time. Much, much thanks to all for that generosity. Your 2020 tickets and other fees will be honored at the next festival.
We are also about to launch a FRFF sponsored COVID-19 CommUNITY READER and later, an online ARTIST MANAGEMENT Seminar as well. The C-19 READER will take the form of a Facebook Community page. Tho most of you know me only thru Falcon Ridge, my GIG, so to speak, before that was Molecular Biology, Virology and Immunology so have gone back to working on some of that.
We will send more info on those projects ASAP. Hope all of you are well and staying safe, safe, safe.
Thinking of all of you as we work and take time to reflect on all that is happening in the world, good and bad, hopeful and tragic, values to keep and those so needful of change. You can always Email me directly at FalcRidge@aol.com

REMINDER – Planning to buy a 3 day ticket OR to VOLUNTEER this year, advance price deadline on tickets is July 10, just a few days away. Go to http://falconridgefolk.com/tickets/ for more info and ordering.
Still want to volunteer – Barbara, our Vol Coordinator says we still have open positions. Some crews have closed, but a few still need people. Go to www.falconridgevolunteers.com, there is a sign-up form, a list of crews with openings & what each crew does.
Volunteering is certainly NOT for everyone. All festivals need their paying attendee support for sure. That support pays for the gas in the tank so to speak but the volunteers ARE the gas in the tank that make it go. They are the life blood as well as the beating heart of any fest like FRFF. Any of our volunteers will tell you this inner circle part of the community is a very special place to be, it does mean several hrs work and likely missing some dancing, singing listening so check it out first. And for those of you still planning to sign up, please do it now. It makes it so much easier if we have a full crew earlier rather than later.
That’s it for now, feel free to Email me anytime at FalcRidge@aol.com
You can sign up or UNSIGN UP for this e-newsletter anytime as well by going to http://ten.pairlist.net/mailman/listinfo/announcements
We look forward to seeing you on the hill this summer! 32 days to GATES OPEN! Thanks, Anne
