Stephen Palmer returns to Hope for a fourth performance

Concert takes place at Hope United Church on April 28

For a fourth time Canadian singer and guitarist Stephen Palmer is bringing his musical charms to Hope and performing live at the Hope United Church.

Taking place this Sunday (April 28), at 2 p.m., Palmer will be providing an afternoon of musical joy as he performs an ensemble of country, gospel, and blues tunes for locals to bop their head to.

Described as having a deep melodic voice and songs full of heartfelt lyrics, Palmer’s show features songs inspired by the “great songwriters and performers” of the 1960’s Folk and Psychedelic Rock era. This includes songs inspired by Gordon Lightfoot, Ian Tyson, Joni Mitchell, and Leonard Cohen (to name a few), as well as the gospel classics he grew up on.

Raised on gospel, blues, and country, Palmer has been a frequent opener for legendary acts in the 1960s’ such as Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, and Fleetwood Mac. Now, fifty-five years later, Palmer has made his name in the music industry as a traveling musician who still plays and frequently tours.

Tickets for the show are $25 at the door and advanced tickets are $20. Purchasing advanced tickets can be done by contacting United Church.
