""I Remember" CD Supported WAMBO (Bulmer to take part in opening ceremonies)"

By Don Robinet, August 6, 2008

A recording artist with strong local roots, who has recorded songs about Wallaceburg, will be returning to WAMBO this year.

Kevin Bulmer will be performing his song “Wallaceburg” during the opening ceremonies on Friday and is also scheduled to play his folk rock style ion Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the lawn at the library.

The Wallaceburg songs trace their origins to early 2007 when Bulmer took on a project in honour of his grandfather, Murray Newkirk, writing and recording three songs in support of the Wallaceburg Antique Motor and Boat Outing (WAMBO) and the town of Wallaceburg in general.

Murray Newkirk lived to hear his grandson perform the songs, and passed away on March 31, 2008.

“Wallaceburg is my family’s home town, and it was everything to my Grandpa Newkirk,” says Bulmer. “He loved watching the boat traffic on waterways like the Sydenham, Snye and St. Clair Rivers. The weekend of WAMBO, when the old wooden boats come back and downtown comes alive again, was an event in which he took great pride. So I decided to do something, largely on his behalf, to support it.”

In February of 2007, Kevin brought to Wallaceburg a song he’d written years earlier. He played it for WAMBO Chairman Chip Gordon and town historian and author, Alan Mann. They instantly encouraged him to continue with the project.

Bulmer soon wrote the songs “I Remember” and “Glass” and began the process of trying to get them on CD. To help out, he called his old friend from the Riverband, Dave Cook, and began working with London-based producer, Kevin Gorman.

In June of 2007, the “I Remember” CD was recorded at KG Productions in London. It was released in July of 2007.

In addition to the three songs on the CD, Kevin once again mixed in his own songs for many of the subsequent performances to support the disc, including “Everything’s Just Fine,” Orlando,” “Bagley Avenue,” “Benjamin Briggs,” “No Schedule Man” and “Back to Buena Vista.”

Bulmer enjoyed positive feedback with his songs and live performances. Among many highlights, he performed at the opening ceremony for the Glass Gallery exhibit at the Wallaceburg and District Museum. He also performed at the Wallaceburg and District Chamber of Commerce annual summer party and performed at the CPT Entertainment Inc. business launch / CD release party on the Macassa Bay Boat in Sarnia.

His songs have been played on local radio station CFCO and he has been featured several times in the local media, including the Wallaceburg Courier Press.
