Welcome to Star Edwards Celtic harp music

Star Edwards is a multi-faceted performer in concert venues to background ambiance, Mel Bay music Publications author and Swallow Hill Music School harp teacher. She is at home delivering historical musical presentations for group of 30 to 500 people.

For weddings, or special events that require a professional, artistic touch, nothing says elegance and ambiance more than harp music! Performing an expansive repertoire: classical, pop, swing/blues, Renaissance, medieval, South American, folk, Celtic, movie tunes, multi-cultural, Broadway standards, holiday, Disney, operatic and oldies.

Star feels equally comfortable playing rock n roll tunes from Van Morrison, Leon Russell, Elton John, Paul Simon, Sting, Beatles, Carol King, Ed Sheeran, John Legend, Lady Gaga, Andrea Bocelli, Bruno Mars, Adele and more!

She delivers an entertaining performance that brings magical cultural connections with heart felt stories and humorous observations of life. Her playing is steeped in the mythology of harp from the Celtic cultures recalling the ancient voice of her heritage. A truly contemporary interpretation speaks through her own finely crafted original songs.

A versatile musician, equally comfortable on the stage of the Paramount Theater playing for 2000 people or playing for an intimate romantic dinner for two. Star is flexible and able to think on her feet at times where events experience a glitch in plans.

Music that blends the rhythm of the heart with the spirit of the world.


"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

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 contemporary Celtic, New Age and World music.
