Mitch Podolak, founder of the Winnipeg Folk Festival remembered by his son, Leonard.
Mitch Podolak, prolific figure in Canadian music, has died. Perhaps most well known in Manitoba as the founding father of the Winnipeg Folk Festival, he also helped start the West End Cultural Centre and the Home Routes House Concert Series among many other musical projects. He hosted 'Simply Folk' on CBC for years, toured the world as a banjo player, and is the father of Leonard Podolak. Leonard Podolak joins Marcy Markusa on Information Radio to remember his father, Mitch.
