"A MUST-SEE MUSICIAN!"

Park Stickney explodes all myths about the harp with jubilation & musical taste. His melodic jazzy style flows from energetic & gritty to sensitively glorious. In concert, Stickney steers his pedal harp gleefully between genres, stamping them all with his trademark limber and improvisatory style.
