I just received word that Mudcatter Paul Mills is the 2011 Estelle Klein Award winner. Here is the description of the award from the 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.


Renowned record and radio producer, folk community leader, Paul Mills is the 2011 recipient of the Estelle Klein Award. His outstanding reputation has been earned over the course of a long and accomplished career.


On a personal level I am so happy for my good friend and his family. These folks are the real deal, full of love and the joy of living. No one is a stranger in that household. On a professional level I am filled with pride at my association with this incredibly gifted producer. I have worked in his studio, and to watch him coax incredible performances out of folks is a wonder to behold.

Congratulations, buddy!!!

All the best,

Mick

When those two play together it is magic. Joanne has a voice to die for, Paul harmonizes perfectly with it, and that guitar work...... Damn I wish I had paid attention and practiced more when I was young....

Great link, bobad.

All the best,

Mick

Good stuff! I saw Paul play at the Mariposa Festival earlier in the month, and he did a superb job as always.

I recall Paul dropping in unannounced at the Port Hawkesbury Creamery a few years ago and was gracious enough to perform a few numbers. In the land of John Allen Cameron and Stan Rogers the audience got far more than their monies worth that night! Way to go!!!

Hi Everyone...

Well, it's been quite some time since I posted anything here but I just came across this thread initiated by Big Mick...thanks, Buddy! I am quite overwhelmed to be receiving this award and the response has been thrilling. You know, there is absolutely nothing better than peer recognition and up here in Canada, the EKA is a big one for us folkies. To say I'm honoured is a huge understatement. Add to that amazed, humbled , ecstatic and proud. Thanks to everyone for their support and friendship.

Paul

Good to hear you are back home safe and sound Jeri. Hope your visit was fun.
Paul, if you come to the Montreal area how about planning a trip to Ormstown(hour from Montreal) for a coffee house evening. Talk to Bill Garrett about our coffee house gig. I'm sure he will give it an "A Plus".

If you decide to do that Montreal gig for Adrien, I will take a road trip, pick you up and we can make a ramble out of it. Might be fun, eh?

Great job on the award and richly deserved!

I see the possibility of and afternoon or evening of "Folk" taking place. Let's see, there would be Paul, Bill and Sue, Mick, Murdoch,Chris Rawlings, Chris Crilly,Ron Bankley would come I'm sure along with his buddy Michael Dion. Allan Fraser would certainly come and others. Jeri would make a special trip from New Hampshire. I'm almost sure i could get enough folks to provide sleep over.

Now that WOULD be something, Adrien.... but who would want to sleep ???

I believe the last time I saw Paul was at Folk Alliance in Cleveland.. he was running sound at the Borealis room which also doubled for some CBC radio tapings... Willie Dunn and I got up for a soundcheck... as an aside, Paul asked 'What's wrong with Willie's guitar?" I said "It's f*cked up'... at that time he was still playing his old Framus warhorse with an action that would cripple Frankenstein and bad intonation above the 3rd fret... Paul lent his gorgeous Laskin flat-top to Willie for the show... man, I was happy.. it made my job a lot easier... I had been bugging him to get a better axe for awhile... he did eventually

Paul, I'll never forget that kindness...thanks again,
and a big congrats on the award... Ron

That is a perfect story to describe this good man. One of the hallmarks of greatness of spirit is that the generosity exhibited is never seen by those folks who offer it as anything other than how it should be. I have seen Paul's generosity over and over again. It is so gratifying, yet not surprising, to see his OCFF peers reward him in this way. It is one of the reasons I have become such a fan of the Toronto folk community.

All the best,

Mick

Gee, I had completely forgotten about the Willie Dunn guitar incident in Cincinnati. One of the things getting an award like this is the chance to look back and remember. It's great fun. Thanks for the stories!

Adrien, that gathering you're suggesting sounds like a blast and a half!

If i thought that the list(names mentioned) would be interested (more could be added) I could come up with a tentative plan and we could throw ideas around for a few months. I am willing to put something together that we could all have fun with. Maybe we could start by asking if your for a next early July meet of some sorts. I say early July because that would be a good time for Chris Rawlings as this would be the best time for him because of his apple farming chores.
