Frank Rackow

Calgary-based prairie correspondent

Grew up in Ottawa and spent time in Europe and Quebec before migrating to western Canada. The move, as it turns out, is somewhat of a return to his roots. Frank's great-grandfather arrived in Winnipeg from Russia in 1882, that's exactly 125 years ago, an anniversary that will be celebrated at a family reunion this year.
When not gracing the stages of Canada's music clubs and festivals with his various musical formations, Frank can generally be found playing in the Rocky mountains with his telemark skis or mountain bike, or driving his kids to hockey practice, music lessons and just about any other activity their hearts desire.
