Pamela Morgan For 19 years, Pamela Morgan was lead singer, guitarist, and arranger for Canada’s pioneering “Celtic” band, Newfoundland’s Figgy Duff, who brought the traditional music of Newfoundland to the world stage. Since then, Pamela has been spearheading her own independent record label, Amber Music, producing music for NL's finest roots artists, including four of her own solo CDs, and licensing tracks to various labels worldwide. As solo artist she has graced stages in England, Canada, the US and Europe, and overseen productions of two original scores for live theater; her own folk opera, “The Nobleman's Wedding”, and Figgy Duff's score for Shakespeare's "The Tempest". In 2007 she received an honorary doctorate from Memorial University, and in 2008 embarked upon a different journey, studying Graphic Design at the College of the North Atlantic. This new skill set led to the release of her handmade book "Newfoundland Ballads for Piano and Voice" in 2011. In 2013 Pamela completed recording Figgy Duff's Tempest score, "Sounds and Sweet Airs" and released her fourth solo CD, entitled "Play On". Further development work of her original folk opera " The Nobleman's Wedding" is ongoing, inspired by a 2014 production of the opera at the Stephenville Theatre Festival. She continues to write, arrange, perform and tour in her own highly original and hauntingly beautiful style.
Opening with our very own, Allison Crowe
From the Viking Trail to the Hollywood Hills, Allison Crowe makes music for everyone. "I love singing for people,” notes the passionate, down-to-earth, multi-instrumentalist (voice, piano, guitar, fiddle, cello, bodhrán+). “It's a way to connect and share with others." Radiant in Theatre Newfoundland & Labrador’s company – a decade with GMTF nurturing her wholehearted love for Cow Head / Gros Morne – Allison embraces trad folk & Celtic to timeless jazz, roots, rock, (originals + interpretations), alongside music for film. Her thrilling performances of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” & Elvis’ “Viva Las Vegas”, recorded in Allison’s hometown, Corner Brook, are each in cinematic blockbusters – both movies, amazingly, received the inaugural “Fan Favorite” Oscars at this year’s Academy Awards ceremony.
