In February 2009, we* visited Bernie at his traditional barber shop on Newington Road, Edinburgh. Bernie, now 62, was incredibly warm and welcoming to us. He spoke to us on a range of topics, from his love of rock ‘n’ roll and blues music, to the changes he has seen in south Edinburgh over the years.
