*** PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS A GAP NEAR THE START OF THIS RECORDING. THE ACTUAL PROGRAM BEGINS AT THE 5:45 MARK *** This week's show is a tribute to Arthur McGregor and his tremendous work with the Ottawa Folklore Centre. The Centre closed on July 23, 2015 after 38 years of operation. The Folklore Centre enriched the community in many important ways. It employed 40 musicians on an ongoing basis as teachers and staff, and played a vital role in connecting people with music through lessons, instruments, repairs, workshops, festivals, concerts, sponsorships, publications, awards, scholarships, mentorships and community choirs. Guests on the show include Lynn Miles, Dean Verger, Brian Dubbeldam, Chris MacLean and Mike Regenstreif. For an excellent 11-minute video created by Andy Frank on the occasion of Arthur receiving the Helen Verger Award from Folk Music Ontario in 2012, see http://youtu.be/y5LgR6rkZa8
