HipHarp presents:

Deborah Henson-Conant LIVE on Stage

Saturday, February 18, 8:00pm-10:00pm, Natick, MA


Grammy-nominated electric harp legend Deborah Henson-Conant's shows combine music, humor, stories with a range of musical styles that fuse Blues, Flamenco, Jazz, Musical Theater and straight out inspirational.

Her voice has been compared to Carly Simon and Joan Baez; her playing to Chuck Berry and Jimi Hendrix; and her humor to musical comedian Victor Borge and Eddie Izzard.

And then there's the harp.

For over two decades, DHC has collaborated with the world's most cutting edge harp company, CAMAC harps in France, to develop a 32-string carbon-fibre wearable electric harp that's named after her, the "DHC." It's the instrument you'll see up close and personal on the stage at TCAN.

DHC has toured her solo show throughout the US and Europe, and performed as a symphony soloist with orchestras like the Boston Pops, Baltimore Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony. She's opened for Ray Charles at Tanglewood, toured as a member of guitar legend Steve Vai's band, headlined at the Edinburgh Fringe and jammed onstage with Bobby McFerrin, Steve Vai, Mason Williams - and offstage with Steven Tyler and Sharon Isbin.

Her collaborative cross-discipline improv project "Inviting Invention" was featured at the Cambridge Science Festival, her one-woman musicals have been featured at festivals and theaters from the Kennedy Center to the Chicago Humanities Festival and her concertos are performed by symphonies and chamber ensembles in the US and Europe.

A night with DHC is a chance to be in the center of creative invention, with an artist who continues to reinvent her style, her music and even her instrument - a composer, performer and creative coach who mentors artists around the globe in her "Harness Your Muse" program, and trains hundreds of harpists in improvisation skills through her "Hip Harp Academy" virtual group learning programs.

See her once and you'll never look at a harp the same way again.
