Singer-songwriter Bernie Gilmore of Strathroy has teamed up with fellow musicians, singers and for one song, the students of Centennial Elementary School to produce Oil Boom, a CD of 10 original oil history songs.

Oil Boom was launched as part of the 2008 celebrations for the 150th anniversary of oil in Lambton County. The modern oil industry was created in Oil Springs, Ontario in 1858 when James Miller Williams refined oil from North America’s first dug well.
