Coming soon!


This BBC Series is set in the 18th century quaint village of Cranford, in the county of Cheshire in North West England. The traditional way of life moves towards uncomfortable changes as signs of progress intrude on daily life. Cranford is delightfully filled with classic town characters with the gossip, the snob, the meek and humble, rigid spinsters, the separation of classes, the soft and accommodating, the would be creative, the learned and unlearned, the desperate looking for husbands, the trickster and handsome healer. The warmth and real concerns of the authentic setting in Cranford are enduring and speak of timeless themes for our modern day where most troubles can be resolved over a nice hot cup of tea.

Celtic Harp Solo and Harp and Cello Duet arrangements
The songs are arranged in the key of G with 2 accidentals - lever flips. The lowest note is G, (1 1/2 octave below middle C). Intermediate arrangement.

"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, Irishrow.com

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

The name of this harp is Golden Gaia. Its shape lends itself well to be a double harp, diatonic, with middle C in the center of the harp. On each side of middle C, is the same configuration of strings. Its sweet celestial sound is unique and bell like. The sides have a wood burning design of the ouroborus.

I designed this harp based on my dream and eventually had it ceated for me by wire harp maker, Alex Golden.
