DJ Hamouris talks with Pam Bowman, one of the faculty members for the 2024 Dulcimoon Festival.
Pam is a northern Michigan native - growing up a "stone's throw" from the Evart (Funfest) area and hailing from Marion, Michigan. A teacher by trade and a musician by birth, Pam Bowman has played guitar and sang from the time she was young. It was in this dulcimer rich region that she first heard and saw a hammered dulcimer being played by a friend's father, while still a teen. It was nearly 10 years later when she noticed it's unique tones drifting through the atmosphere of a local, historic craft shop - inquired if it was a hammered dulcimer in the recording - and thought to herself..."I'm old enough to buy one of those now!" Since that time she has been performing with the hammered dulcimer for over 25 years as a soloist, as a duo with guitarist Jeff Gardner, and with a five piece group called Just Jammin' - performing gospel/country/bluegrass music. In 2005 Pam entered and won the Southern Regional Hammered Dulcimer Competition in Mt. View, Arkansas. Pam gives private lessons and group lessons (in person and online) on the hammered dulcimer, as well as teaching work-shops and performing at various festivals.
