Hill House Alum Update

As spring slowly rolls into summer, and we do mean slowly, we take a moment to reflect on our Hill House alums and what they have been involved with over the past few months.


Passepartout Duo:
This past spring, Passepartout Duo, comprised of Christopher Salvito on drums/percussion and Nicoletta Favari on piano/keyboard, released a new piece on Bandcamp entitled, “A Northern Year,” featuring composer, Hafdís Bjarnadóttir. Listen to this inspiring and haunting track HERE.


Heather Lockie:
Heather Lockie, a performer/composer out of Los Angeles, released a new song as well, “Genius Machine,” from the album Marshweed in the Garden. This particular song even made it to a Spotify playlist.


Abigail Lapell:
Abigail received the No Depression Singer-Songwriter Award with the Fresh Grass Festival this spring. In addition to this honor, her modern folk album, Hide Nor Hair, won the Canadian Folk Music Award. Hear a couple of her pieces HERE.


Jenny Johnson:
