Remembering the Ottawa Folklore Centre

This week's edition of Canadian Spaces (Saturday morning from 10 to noon) 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. Thank you, Arthur!
