Kawartha Trio

Kawartha Trio

Kawartha Trio

The Kawartha Trio features Judy Loman, harp, her daughter Linda Umbrico, viola and her son-in-law Ross Edwards, clarinet in charming arrangements of classic pieces that they love to play. It all started during family vacation time at Judy’s acreage in the Kawartha Lakes area. They explored repertoire that could be adapted for their unique instrumentation. This includes music from the baroque era to more contemporary works, all which resonate with audiences.
