Fred Armisen Leads Larry David, Jason Sudeikis & SNL Cast On Made-Up Folk Song

first_imgLast night marked the season finale of Saturday Night Live, and with Fred Armisen hosting the program, there was bound to be plenty of cameos from former cast members. Jason Sudeikis and Maya Rudolph both made appearances throughout the episode, and Larry David was also on hand to reprise his role as Sen. Bernie Sanders.One of the final sketches of the night was a random folk performance, as Sasheer Zamata jokes, “Who likes early ’70s style Southern rock? No one? Too bad, because we paid for them.” Then Armisen asks, “Who here is from Fayetteville, Arkansas?” and “Any you kids ever been to a honky tonk?”, which, of course, gets no reply from the audience. Regardless, Armisen still leads a folk singalong on a song called “Summertime In Fayetteville,” playing the leader of The Harkin Brothers Band. Maya Rudolph even contributes a verse, with Armisen providing some harmonies.As the camera pans across the cast-wide band, you can see who’s really playing. Kate McKinnon is strumming along on the guitar, Sudeikis is rocking the drums, and Armisen – the musical director of Late Night With Seth Meyers – is grooving along on the piano. Larry David is also jamming there in the front row, playing a triangle.Watch the amusing video from last night’s episode, below.last_img read more
