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 and Labrador 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, and work is also ongoing on two new projects; Wetland, and The White Fleet Suite,
She continues to write, arrange, and perform in her own highly original and hauntingly beautiful style.
