    Deborah Henson-Conant

     Forget everything you think you know about the harp. Deborah Henson-Conant barrels through every stereotype with her free-wheeling take on the instrument. Instead of the sedentary stillness enforced on most harpists, Deborah infuses the stage with dynamic movement and a dazzling range of styles.

     Forget everything you think you know about the harp. Deborah Henson-Conant barrels through every stereotype with her free-wheeling take on the instrument. Instead of the sedentary stillness enforced on most harpists, Deborah infuses the stage with dynamic movement and a dazzling range of styles. The Grammy-nominated harpist and songwriter brings a boundary-crossing spirit to her one-woman shows; mixing rock and roll with classical, blues and world music, jumping from organic finger-picking styles to looping digital effect pedals, and switching between songs, stories, and theatrical elements. Henson-Conant is not one to keep still. Wielding her signature blue harp strapped to her side, she conjures comparisons to arena rock stars, and has the outsized personality and confidence to match her enormous sound. This will be a performance that will no doubt leave a powerful lasting impression.
