Jim_Maher_400.jpgJim Maher

Jim Maher has been in love with music since childhood after receiving a steel guitar and lessons for his birthday. His music eventually morphed toward acoustic and his eclectic taste has enabled him to share his passion for music with people of all ages and backgrounds. Influenced by early folk and rock, he has explored music dating back into the early 1920’s through the present. Jim believes that “music is at the heart of the human soul and something which can connect people on many levels”

Ernie Lawrence played rock music in bands and folk music in coffeehouses during the early 1970’s. But life happened and along with it, responsibilities as a husband, father and teacher. He renewed his playing again in 2007 and since, has performed solo and as a duo with his son Andrew at festivals, clubs and coffeehouses around western New York while opening for national acts in Buffalo, Rochester and the southern tier. He is influenced by blues, jazz, old country and spirituals as well as original songs that he has written.
