PAMELA

Pamela Hill has been involved in some sort of music as long as she can remember. With a mother who taught piano and voice, it was given that she would start piano at the age of five and she continued to pursue classical piano until she was 17. In high school she branched out into woodwinds and sat first chair saxophone in the high school band. She was also active in the jazz band and sat second chair in the local University band during her senior year in high school. As an adult, she moved away from the classical world and into the world of big band, blues and musical theatre. She has arranged music for several shows and played for numerous other productions including West Side Story, her most challenging.

In 2001, Pamela decided to start Irish dance. A love for celtic music and culture has grown to include participating in music again. In the spring of 2006, Pamela was invited to an Irish Session at the Cheshire Cat. After a little lurking, Pamela purchased a whistle and began to learn to play. Very quickly, she decided that flute would be a great addition, and purchased her first wooden flute for her birthday. She has since added Irish Bouzouki and Mandolin to her instrumental lineup. Pamela is a regular participant in Denver area sessions and has performed in numerous venues with the band Mondragon prior to joining Lougheed.

Pamela plays Pipe Makers Union whistles, Terry McGee flutes and a Herb Taylor bouzouki.
