Hypnotic, spellbinding ... Kenny Finton sings with a voice as smooth as polished granite. Chaya backs him up and sings her own songs with an Emmylou Harris quality, except you can understand the words Chaya sings.
Why this name?
Our first choice was the Lawrence Welk Orchestra, but the name was already taken, so we decided on our own name from the town in Northern Ireland where our ancestors came from -- Fintona. Besides, it is our last name.
Do you play live?
Playing live seems highly preferable to playing dead. We do this a lot, play live, that is.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I had an MP3 for lunch and it was delicious. Try one with mustard and onion!
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Major Labels are not as high ranking as General Labels. Still, a Private First Class label does the trick for me.
Band History:
See for more info.

My name is Kenny Finton. I’ve been writing music for more that 40 years. I performed as a young man in coffeehouses, concerts, and did the folk circuits during the folk craze in the late 60s. I then became a staff writer in NewYork City, after three years I got sick of it and moved back to my roots and the countryside. I quit performing during that time, taking time to raise a family, care for elders, and pursue many other ambitions. Yet, I never quit writing. I returned to performance in the 80's when the urban country craze rocked the movies and radio. Not liking bars, once again I quit to pursue more intellectual things. I have returned to performing again in the last three to four years and have made a great little niche in Denver playing originals and covers for seniors, casinos and selected venues and parties, most of it local. Like Little Richard, I am pretty darned well preserved for my age. I would never trade the experiences and challenges I have faced for youth -- nor would I take a drink from the fountain of youth, thank you. Except for some inevitable health changes, becoming a senior is a righteous gas and has its own valuable perks. Our performances have done nothing but improve in all that time. I am much fonder of the way I can sing and write now than I ever was as a teenager or a 40-something. I might be too old for 'American Idol', but you will quickly find that my music is a lot different melodically and lyrically than the usual fare offered up on the Internet. Whether ‘tis better or not is your choice, not mine. I am pleased with the improvements, personally. I have learned the great art of loving my life and times. Chaya and I have been working together for 30 years. She also gets better and better with time. Like old wine, deliciousness is often a matter of time.
Your influences?
The EGYPTIAN BOOK OF THE DEAD, dogs howling, sirens screaming, storms blowing and jackals laughing.
Favorite spot?
We live in Colorado and are happy with our lot. Our lot is 150x300.
Equipment used:
Toothbrushes, soap, shampoos and wash clothes and deodorants for impeccable hygiene.
Anything else...?
The Finton's original songs sound like they have been major hits for many years. With Chaya on harmony, there is a magic vibe that makes the soul quiver.
