Deborah Henson-Conant

Wielding a bright blue customized electric harp with an array of digital effects which she helped to design, Grammy nominated, Deborah Henson-Conant wears her instrument strapped on the way Hendrix wore his Stratocaster, and is just as revolutionary to experience. Replacing the sedentary stillness enforced on most harpists with dynamic movement and a dazzling range of styles, her solo show weaves one number into the next with whimsical tales of her childhood and snippets of ancient harp lore. One moment she conjures up the entire sound of a traditional Mexican street band, the next she summons time-traveling Flamenco dancers who have run amok in Marie Antoinette’s boudoir. A true Renaissance woman, Deborah’s marketing acumen and unique educational programs add to her one-of a-kind status. With the ease of a stand-up comic and a voice like a rock star, see her once and you’ll never look at the harp the same way again.
