The Historical Association of Lewiston will present “If Ever There Was a Time, I Wish I Were There,” at 7 p.m. Thursday, at the Lutheran Church of the Messiah Fellowship Hall, 915 Oneida St. The show is free and open to the public.
Ernest Palmer will premiere two of his original compositions along with corresponding videos. Both songs are part of a CD scheduled for release later in 2018.
A longtime area musician, Palmer currently plays bass and guitar with Tom Keefer and the Celtic Cross Band. He will speak about the writing process and his choice of lyrics as they pertain to the area.
Palmer is a former Niagara Falls and Youngstown police chief who resides in Lewiston. He also is an independent auditor, consultant specializing in law enforcement use of force, and former Lewiston Town Council member.
