BIO -123 words
Raised on gospel, country and the blues, Stephen Hardy Palmer travels the troubadour circuit from BC to the Maritimes.
In the 60’s his psychedelic folk-rock bands toured with and supported most of the big name suspects during the UK invasion. And then more steady dues paid as guitarist-for-hire in country bands working the western Canadian bar scene. He started using his voice in the ‘80s, when he studied music a bit more formally.
In the new millenium, Stephen Hardy Palmer has self-released 5 albums of ‘Original & Traditional’ music.
Still playing and still touring, Stephen Palmer is “grown enough to sing about life and simple pleasures with all the unhurried authority of a quiet and simple folk-singing road-survivor.” (Root Cellar Records)
