She's a Grammy-nominated electric harp virtuoso with a wicked sense of humor, a gutsy set of vocal chords and a theatrical flair. And in this intimate concert at Harps Etc. you'll experience DHC up close and personal. Inventive. Spontaneous. She pulls sounds from the strings you'd never expect to hear from the instrument St. Peter hands out at the Pearly Gates: Blues. Jazz. Flamenco. Distortion. And then there's the looper pedal -- a double-jacked foot-pedal that lets her record music on the fly, building rhythmic layers that over and over until she's created an almost symphonic bed of sound she improvises over. Poetic dissonance, movement, story and song -- all pulled from the 32 strings of an instrument she wear like a massive bronze bow-and-arrow, the electric harp that's named after her, the "DHC-Light."
It sold out FAST last time - and now she's back!! Deborah Henson-Conant is returning to the Pacific Harps Showroom for an intimate salon concert on May 16, 2015 at 8PM. VIP ticket holders will have an opportunity to meet and talk with DHC over hors-d’oeuvres and wine before the concert.
The Museum of Making Music is SUCH a great place for a concert!!! The museum itself is right near Leggo-Land and the exhibits are open before the concert. I'm thrilled to be returning to MoMM as part of their 15th Anniversary Al- Star Concert Series! I first appeared at MOMM as part of their special harp exhibition concert series in 2013 to a sold out crowd! So get your tickets early! Grammy-nominated vocalist and electric harpist Deborah Henson-Conant returns to The Museum of Making Music for a solo show on Fri. May 15, 2015. Stories, humor, and music from Blues to Flamenco with sounds you never thought could come from a harp.
Known as the "finest church coffeehouse in the country" and I can personally attest to the pastries! Circle of Friends is like a visit to a 60's coffeehouse, BUT, with a modern sound system. Intimate. Funky. Fun. Franklin is equidistant from Boston, Providence and Worcester on 495, about 25 miles southwest of Boston.
The lead-up to the Holidays is intense –then it all deflates in the cold days of January when the Blues hit you hard. That’s why electric-harp legend Deborah Henson-Conant always brings her Annual Lose Your Blues show to the Boston Area just after New Year’s. She's a GRAMMY®-Nominated composer and performer who sings and plays an instrument invented for her – the 32-string electric harp. She’s toured with guitar legend Steve Vai and with the Boston Pops- and her first show of 2015 is the annual “Lose your Blues” Show at TCAN! Imagine a 32-string harp shrunk to the size of a crossbow, she strides onto stage with the swagger of a matador, straps on her instrument and plugs it in like an electric guitar. She sings & tells stories, pulling sounds from the harp you’d never expect to hear: Blues, Flamenco, even Rock licks. She’s a solo performer – someone who loves to create an entire world just from what she can do with hands, feet, instrument and voice.
