Handsome Ned

Toronto, Ontario

Handsome Ned was the stage name of Robin David Masyk (June 4, 1957 - January 10, 1987), a country singer and songwriter. Although he only released a small number of singles and was never widely known outside of Toronto during his lifetime, he has been credited as the catalyst for an early-1980s country music and roots rock revival in Toronto which paved the way for acts such as Blue Rodeo, Prairie Oyster, Skydiggers and Cowboy Junkies to break through to greater fame.  As well, he received a posthumous Juno Award nomination for Best Male Country Vocalist at the Juno Awards of 1990.
