Pär Lindh is a founding member of the Swedish symphonic rock group Pär Lindh Project.

Before turning to working in a band Pär had several careers: church organist, as a touring classical pianist, as a solo harpsichordist, as drummer, as Hammond organist, as jazz & ragtime entertainer etc. During 1977 and 1978 he played in Antenna Baroque and Vincebus Eruptum, but he decided to leave the rockscene in 1979 to become a classical player. He moved to France to continue this career. In 1989 he returned to Sweden determined to once again take up the banner of progressive rock.

1991 - 1994[edit]

In 1991 Pär Lindh and friends started The Swedish Art Rock Society.[1] This festival was a startingpoint for a new wave of progressiv-rock and art-rock. During this period Pär, alongside Jocke Ramsell and Magdalena Hagberg who died in 2007, made his first record with the Crimsonic Label, Gothic Impressions.

1995 - 1999[edit]

Pär continued working with Ramsell and Hagberg, and together with Nisse Bielfeld and Marcus Jäderholm, they formed Pär Lindh Project. In 1996 the concept album 'Bilbo' was released, inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien's first book The Hobbit. PLP headlined the 1997 Rio Art Rock Festival and played other dates in Brazil and Argentina. Late 1997 saw the release of Mundus Incompertus.

2000 - present[edit]

PLP are always received well on tour, and have won several prizes for "Best band of festival".1 After the summer 2000 tour PLP continued as the trio Magdalena, Nisse and Pär to record PLP's third album Veni Vidi Vici. In 2002 the band suffered a setback due to illness. However, they did a strong return in 2004, and started recording a new album. In 2009,Pär wanted to start a new band with some teenagers from the area. The band's name became "The Willburgers". In 2011 released the new album of Pär with PLP,"Time Mirror".
