Jerry Burrows

 JERRY BURROWS: My guitar was a large part of my teen years...it’s always been about singing as a group...camp fire singing is still what i call, my type of playing. My dad liked to sing so the cottage was a weekend show with friends and relatives. We owned a lodge for a while in Temagami and the guitar was a Wednesday must, camp fire and fish fry evening at Bambi lodge. Next was our career at camp Wabikon, a children's camp, always a campfire some place, playing in the rain at times.

The guitar was always by my side. I finally got a Charland guitar, hand made by Bridget Charland, a true quality instrument. It’s with me everywhere i go. In summer it's in our boat and gets played at various places on lake temagami, especially  every Saturday morning, at the Temagami market. ''Bobby'' is the name of my guitar, named after a dear friend who passed away with cancer. We play at all the golden age places in and around New Liskeard, church basements and private parties.
