In cartoons, harps are depicted with bony-fingered crones with prehistoric spectacles, with repertoires of woolly impressionism. Not the world of Park Stickney. Call him a jazz harpist, who improvizes, reworks, covers, etc. He garners from Purcell to Queen, presents with humour, or earnestness, always with unbridled joy. Along with his solo career, he teaches at London’s Royal Academy of Music, the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Lyon and the Haute Ecole de Musique in Lausanne: a giant in harp land.
