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