Eva Murphy
Harpist St. Louis, Missouri
As a professional, degreed harpist for over 30 years, I have performed worldwide as a soloist on the concert harp, from restaurants and hotels to small ensembles and orchestras.  I specialize in providing the perfect musical setting for all types of family, social, religious or business occasions. I will perform either indoors or outside. No matter what your musical preference, a wide variety of music can be played on the harp, including folk, classical or religious music, pop songs, movie themes, show tunes and Latin music.  Harp music sounds beautiful on its own, or in small ensembles with various combinations of harp, flute, violin, and cello. I can perform in recitals. For further information, please view my website and hear sound clips at: www.stlouisharpist.com

Rick Stanley
Harpist Douds, Iowa
Singer/Songwriter/Harper/Harpmaker Rick Stanley started his musical career on the cutting edge of the 60's folk rock scene by recording The Gentle Soul, "The most beautiful...album of the year" (Billboard Magazine) with legendary guitarist Ry Cooder on Columbia Records (Re-Released 2004). After years of performing all over the world and recording seven highly acclaimed albums of original and traditional music, his ability to become "one" with the audience, sharing spontaneous tears and abundant laughter, is something wonderful to experience. A multi-instrumentalist, Rick accompanies his "Cat Stevens like voice" with his extraordinarily creative style on self-built Irish harp, 6 & 12 string guitar and banjo. Bodhran (Irish drum) great, Claudine, masterfully accompanies Rick and at larger venues, fiddler Tara Dutcher joins in.
