"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
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 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.
