The Fly nd Camel Café presents

 

Steve Palmer

 

Sunday, Jan. 29, 2:30 pm in the Journey Space

 

Wordsmith Stephen Palmer will deliver his unique brand of Folk-Roots music to the Fly and Camel Café Sunday afternoon January 29 at 2:30 pm. For his Fly and Camel debut, Steve will bring his guitars (12 and 6 string), down home vocals, some Gospel favourites, and a tasteful offering of original compositions.

 

Originally from Edmonton, Steve Palmer has over 50 years of performing experience. Over the decades he has opened for, and backed up, music legends like Dick Damron, George Hamilton IV, Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Led Zeppelin, and The Who.

 

Going solo now, Steve has concentrated on his own songwriting and has four albums of original and traditional music released. His music has been heard on CBC and community radio across Canada and Europe, and in the US on NPR. A new project is in the works for 2017.

 

Winnipeg friend Travis Haugen will join Steve on bass and back-up vocals. Best known as a member of the popular rock group ‘After All These Years,’ Travis is also in demand as a studio musician.

 

“Nice playing!” – Valdy
