After a theft, a story and a tweet from the right person, 82-year-old veteran Edward Sheppard is once again strumming a guitar.

"Newfoundland people are the best people on the planet," said his daughter, Yolanda Sheppard. "I said it before and I'll say it again!"

Edward Sheppard's previous guitar — a cherished gift from his late wife, who saved up for over a year to buy it for him — was stolen from his Stephenville Crossing home.


Comedian Mark Critch tweeted the CBC News story about the theft and asked if any of his musician friends could supply a new guitar for Sheppard.

Musician Alan Doyle answered the call.
