Register and they’ll send a Zoom link before the lecture. Of special interest because some have suggested renaming or redesignating Palmer Park after Earl Palmer. 🙂

Our first lecture will be on New Orleans Drummer Earl Palmer and how important of an influence Palmer is to the history of music in the 20th century. Musicians and Tour Guide Dave Thomas will explain why we should be celebrating Palmer and how we should recognize his influence.
