His variety and depth of repertoire, his humor and vitality on stage, as well as an incredible ease of performance, make Park one of the most sought after jazz harpists in the world.
Park Stickney is a magnificent pedal harp jazz player, perhaps the most complete of our time. There is no harp festival without his presence. He not only improvises with the music, but with the moment. Whether performing his own compositions, recitals, jazz standards or classic harp repertoire, Park has the enormous capacity to create his own interpretation, while simultaneously drawing in his audience, in one way or another, to be part of what is happening on the stage.
Park is a jazz harp teacher at the Royal Academy of Music in London, assistant to the National Conservatory of Lyon and teaches improvisation at the Haute Ecole de Musique in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Stickney has five solo CDs: Overdressed Late Guy, Action Harp Play Set, Still, Life with Jazz Harp, Surprise Corner, and All Harp – Globe Live.
