From the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals’ website:
“Each year, the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals (OCFF) honours the work of an individual or group that has made significant contributions to Ontario’s folk music community. The award is named after Estelle Klein, a long-time advocate of Canadian folk music and one of the early founders of the folk festival scene in this country.
The 2012 Estelle Klein Award recipient is Arthur McGregor.”
Arthur is the founder and owner of the Ottawa Folklore Centre. It is his vision and passion that drives the store.
Congratulations to you Arthur McGregor!
