Sunday event to recall rumrunner era

Several UWindsor instructors are on the program for a concert Sunday promising to recall Prohibition-era Windsor.

Showcasing music of the 1920s, “Prohibition and Pipes” will feature professor emeritus David Palmer at the keyboard of an organ originally owned by liquor baron James Cooper for his mansion in Walkerville, and resident writing professional Marty Gervais sharing anecdotes from his best-selling history, The Rumrunners.

A number of UWindsor alumni will embark on the historical journey along with these instructors from the School of Creative Arts: trombonist Michael Stone, trumpeter Bob Fazecash, and harpist Amy Ley.

The event, presented by 4th Wall Music, gets underway at 4 p.m. March 18 at the Morris Sutton Chapel, 68 Giles Boulevard East. Admission is $20, with a discounted rate of $10 for students and $5 for children under 12 years old. Learn more on the Facebook event page.
