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

of Celtic, Folk, New Age, Fusion Jazz and Rock music exemplifies

they focused their energy on expanding the boundaries of contemporary
Celtic, New Age and World music.
