Goodbye Mitch

In loving memory of Mitch Podolak, August 2019

How will we ever manage without Brave Mitch
Always ready with his Joy-filled Bright Pitch

For more Good Folk Music, more Partying
More Good Food and Dancing, more Fun

He has left us now, and gone where all
Great Folk Music Souls go, to the Great

Folk Music Festival in the Sun, strumming
His old Banjo, humming his Favourite Tunes

He has left us, he has not left us, his Spirit
Wafts over us as always, conducting us all

Into lovelier Harmonies and Rhymes and Runes
Mitch, you made us feel Happy and Rich and Tall
