Winds of Change
The Swan River Trio features three unique singer/songwriters whose blend of music fuses all of their styles together in a rich tapestry. Valorie Kay and Cindy Barton started out as a duo in 1997 and Lars Pinter joined them in 1998. Valorie and Cindy are noted for their fluid harmonies. Add Lars and they have 3 part synergy. Valorie plays rhythm and acoustic guitar, Lars plays acoustic and a graceful and versitile lead guitar, and Cindy plays classical guitar as well as an excellent percussion on the congas. The Winds of Change was recorded in bigfork, Montana. Their sound is a soothing variety of folk, folk-rock, and new thought. Lyrics are just as important as text and they emphasize vocal harmony. This music is something that you can hum or tap along with or drive down the road with.
