Description#1:a local Peterborough, Ontario artist named, Bernie Martin. Bernie passed away in 1995 and his good friend and fellow artist, Brian Sanderson, uncovered over 150 songs in his backyard studio. He immediately began work on releasing the songs in the form of a tribute album. He passed around the original recordings to almost 50 artists in the community for their interpretation and the album, A Certain Man..., was released in 1997. Bernie wore many hats and seemed to be gaining recognition for his work later in life. He was an actor, painter, playwright, musician, poet and craftsman. He played live but didn't really promote his work and many of his songs were only known to family and friends.
