Stephen Palmer will be offering guitar lessons at the Silverton Gallery this summer.

Concert and guitar workshop offered in Silverton this August

Steve Palmer has covered a lot of miles and a lot of music. Forty five years as a traveling musician is a lot of road.

From opening for rock greats like Led Zeppelin and Eric Clapton, to sharing the stage with acoustic legends like Valdy and Fred Eaglesmith, Steve Palmer has covered a lot of miles and a lot of music. Nowadays he describes his music as “a joyous blending of original and traditional Country, Folk, Gospel, Blues, and Ragtime.”

He performs all of his music acoustically using his six- and 12-string guitars and singing with a voice that has been described as a “warm blanket on a cold winter’s night.” Forty five years as a traveling musician is a lot of road, and Stephen Palmer is still playing and still touring and still loving it.

Stephen is also offering a guitar workshop on Sunday, August 4 from 2-4 p.m., for only $10.  He has been teaching for over 10 years, and offers these group workshops at festivals and when on tour, playing concerts throughout Western Canada.

“We cover several rhythm guitar styles and the basics of Carter and Travis style picking as featured in my concerts. Hammer-ons and pull-offs are covered and some good left and right hand development exercises,” explains Palmer.  The workshop includes an eight-page tab hand out for future study. No formal music reading skills are required.


The Silverton Gallery presents country roots singer/guitarist/songwriter Stephen Palmer in concert on Friday, August 3, 2013. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and admission is $10 at the door. For more info and registration call 250-358-7198 or email
