Just for You
She's called the "wild woman of the harp," and she's changing the way the world sees this ancient instrument. To describe Deborah Henson-Conant is nearly impossible, she is as much an entertainer as a musician and she calls her music "cross-genre": jazz-pop-comedy-folk-blues-flamenco-Celtic. Henson-Conant has toured with the Boston Pops, opened for Ray Charles at Tanglewood, performed her one-woman show from Budapest to Boston, starred in the PBS Special "Celtic Harpestry," and has been featured on NBC, CBS, CNN, NPR and hosted TV shows for BET and BBC Affiliates. She's been interviewed by Charlie Rose, Lou Rawls, Joan Rivers, Studs Terkel, Scott Simon, Billy Taylor and Susan Stamberg. And if you're one of those people who thinks a harp is meant to soothe the savage beast, think again! This time it's the savage beast who's PLAYING the darn thing Cabaret ... Comedy ... Music ... Deborah Henson-Conant tells stories with music and plays the harp â?? the electric harp â?? the strap-on, solid-body electric harp. Funny, moving and thoroughly unexpected musical theatre. "A combination of Leonard Bernstein, Steven Tyler and Xena the Warrior Princess." (The Boston Globe)
