Star and KingBeat combined forces in 2010 to create a five piece folk rock band. Imbuing new wave Irish-rock versions of ancient Celtic tunes with their jazz-fusion flavor, their exploration of Celtic, Folk, New Age, Fusion Jazz and Rock music exemplifies the unique sound they call World Harp Rock. Performing hits from the likes of calypso icon, Harry Belafonte, and Nouveau flamenco artist, Ottmar Liebert, and jazz guitarist, George Benson they focused their energy on expanding the boundaries of contempory Celtic, New Age and World music.
