Could be worth checking out. These guys have been involved with things like Spinal Tap and Best in Show, merciless parodies that manage to maintain affection for their subjects. The Toronto Second City crew has been involved in some of the best humor of the last generation, without resorting to extremities of vulgarity and political incorrectness (not that there's anything wrong with that.) (OK, Levy was in American Pie, but a guy's gotta make a buck somewhere.)
Folksters are notoriously pious about the music, so they should make a good target, but there is something poignant in watching the aging of artists that have been around longer than I can remember, as I mentioned in this Roger McGuinn post. The Weavers documentary, Wasn't That a Time!, made shortly before the death of Lee Hays, sets the pattern for this sort of thing.

Saw it and liked it, there's some laugh-aloud moments. But overall, "folkies" aren't as funny as heavy-metal/arena-rock bands (or dog-owners).
