2011 Estelle Klein Award Bio – Paul Mills
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 and 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.
Roots Music Canada was asked to produce the above film, which was presented at the OCFF Conference on October 15, 2011 at Niagara Falls, Ontario. It was an honour to do it. We would like to thank all of the participants in the film, and editor Rick Scicluna for his lovely final touches.
