Park Stickney is today’s most accomplished jazz harpist, never ceasing to amaze and inspire his audiences while he plays the seemingly impossible on the harp with astonishing virtuosity, liberty and wit. While attempting to live simultaneously in Brooklyn and on a farm in Switzerland, Stickney is constantly in motion, giving concerts throughout Europe and the U.S., performing almost year round at harp festivals all over the globe, and with the very best of artists and orchestras in rock, jazz and classical music. At the Wild Strings opening concert, he will perform a fascinating set of harp solo jazz music.
Rachael and the Red Socks are a harp-led six piece featuring vocals, cello, trumpet, guitar, double bass and percussion. Their upbeat, folky songs come with an infusion of jazz, grooving world rhythms and gorgeous harmonies. They deliver intricate, melodic stories about people, places and journeys both physical and personal. Their set at Band on the Wall will celebrate the launch of their second album, Somewhere By The Moon.
Plus – Harp Rave! Breaking new ground in both harping and clubbing, the night will move on to present cutting-edge DJ’s alongside the most dynamic and unconventional harpists. Giving room for new talent, expect beats and harp in a most extraordinary club night. Wild Strings at its wildest.
