Michael William Burmeister bills himself as “The Ramblin’ Gump,” a folk singing harmonica player that roams around Langley with his two loves – Oskar the dog and a talent for live music.

Burmeister was profiled last year, caught performing on the same bench in Fort Langley.

More recently, a passerby caught an updated picture of Mike and Oskar on his favourite perch in front of the lelem cafe – near the banks of the Bedford Channel.

This time, however, the musician was playing his penny whistle with the aid of a new piece of equipment – a face shield.
