Stephen Palmer to follow folk fest

The Envision Twilight Concert Series continues after the Mission Music Folk Festival with Stephen Palmer at Fraser River Heritage Park on Wednesday, July 27 from 7 to 8 p.m.

Palmer has performed in arenas and pubs, coffee houses and churches since the 1960s. His early folk-rock groups opened for legendary rock acts including Led Zeppelin, The Who, and Cream.

Now, with over 40 years of road experience, he has gone back to his acoustic roots. With three critically acclaimed albums to his credit, Palmer is performing at folk clubs and festivals throughout Western Canada and the northwestern U.S.

Palmer sings about life and simple pleasures with all the unhurried authority of a quiet and simple folk-singing road-survivor. He is sometimes compared to Hoyt Axton, Leonard Cohen, or John Prine.

The Art in the Park program features the art of Pam Ellis; Betty Sandmark’s jewelry; acrylic painter Donna Duvall; and Salt Lane Studio’s craft workshop.

The Log Cabin Café and the Blackberry Kitchen are open. Admission is free but donations are encouraged. Your support along with the generous contributions of sponsors will ensure that the series continues. For more information call 604-826-0277.
