Star Edwards Celtic Harp Music


Welcome to Star Edwards Celtic harp music

For weddings, special events and venues that require a professional, artistic touch, nothing says elegance and ambiance more than harp music. Performing an expansive repertoire, from classical, Renaissance, medieval, South American, folk, Celtic, movie tunes, ethnic, popular and oldies, Star delivers an entertaining performance that brings magical cultural connections. Heart felt stories with passion and humorous observations of life, steeped in the mythology of harp from the Celtic cultures, her performance recalls an ancient calling. A truly contemporary interpretation speaks through her own finely crafted original songs. Music that blends the rhythm of the heart with the spirit of the world. Star performs solo, as a duo, trio and with the rock band KingBeat.


"Classic interpretation, professionally performed" -- Dave Lacomte, My Brother's Bar, Denver

"Whether solo or trio, background for a reception or as a featured headliner, count on her audience thrilling artistry and consummate professionalism" -- Jim Schwartzkopff, Venture West Talent Agency

"When listening to Star Edwards' recent harp recordings, her talent is abundantly clear. I am especially impressed not only by her technical proficiency but also with the musicality with which everything is performed. Star's arrangements have a pleasant upbeat character reminiscent of traditional folk harp tunes, some of which are complimented by guitar, koto and drums. Whether in live performance or on CD, everyone should check out her work." -- Dr. Ted Nichelson, pedal harpist

"Star's music represents the finest of her genre, evocative and powerful yet with a lightness of spirit and touch. Listen closely and let the music take you where it will." -- Don Slepian, host of ArtMusicCoffeehouse.com

When the din of the drum sets of rock bands, the chant of the pipes, and the silvery sounds of ballad singers find some distance, my favorite moment of any Irish Festival has been to sit in the shade and hear Star Edwards play the harp ... not simply to play it, but to play it in that way that made it the national symbol of Ireland. And it is, and her music is, Irish like nothing else." -- Brian Clancy, Brian@irishrow.com

Star Edwards' band or trio is a perfect act for an outdoor festival.....very magical!" -- Rhonda Welch, Greeley Arts Promoter

 



Star Edwards and KingBeat, Swallow Hill Concert 2013

 

Star and KingBeat combined forces in 2010 to create a five piece folk rock band. Imbuing new wave Irish-rock versions of ancient Celtic tunes with their jazz-fusion flavor, their exploration of Celtic, Folk, New Age, Fusion Jazz and Rock music exemplifies the unique sound they call World Harp Rock. Performing hits from the likes of calypso icon, Harry Belafonte, Nouveau flamenco artist, Ottmar Liebert, and jazz guitarist, George Benson they focused their energy on expanding the boundaries of contempory Celtic, New Age and World music.

Their new CD, Sonic Travels, has been dubbed "a great accomplishment" by Don Slepian, musician, innovator and sound sculptor. Star's team up with KingBeat takes the Celtic harp out of its traditional role and creates a modern dance sound that delivers energy and enthusiasm outside the box. Mixing a new electric harp sound with KingBeat's polished rock music allows the soulful musicianship of the group to emerge as one of Colorado's most innovative bands.
