Grammy-Nominated harp virtuoso. Wicked sense of humor. Theatrical flair. Concert 5/21 -Pasadena, CA Share on X


square-generic-DHC-concert-HoffmanThe show will be an intimate outdoor garden soiree where you get the chance to get up close & personal with DHC!

This is DHC’s 3rd Annual appeared at Pasadena’s Pacific Harp and the show always sells out, so be sure to buy your tickets right away!

You’ll see Deborah playing the fan favorites as well as new-not-yet-released music and the close up view will let you see exactly how she does it!


A Very Special “Loopers & More” workshop with DHC
Come as you are — Harps, loopers and Amps are all provided!

Do you want to know more about harps and amplification?  Have you wanted to try out the new loopers, but don’t know where to start — or where to go after you get the first steps?  This workshop is a chance to get your hands (and your feet!) on loopers and amps with hands-on help from DHC and the Pacific Harps staff – and then ask her ANYTHING else you want to know to take your harp playing to the next level.

THE 1st HALF of this fun hands-on (and feet-on!) workshop is all about Loopers and Amplification. Pacific Harps is providing the harps – PLUS a brand new series of Loopers and Amps straight from the Boss factory and Roland showroom.  We’ll work on loops you can improvise over, loops you can layer – and the trick of TIMING so you loop with rhythm. And you won’t have to wait in line for your chance at the equipment – there’s enough for everyone!

Even if you don’t want to play with a looper, you’ll be able to use these techniques for improvising solo AND for ensemble improvisation.

THE 2nd HALF is a special “No-Holds-Barred-Ask-Me-Anything” session where YOU ask the questions and DHC shows you the secrets behind anything she does  – from harp strums to the trick of singing-while-harping – or anything else you want to know.


She’s a Grammy-nominated electric harp virtuoso with a wicked sense of humor, a gutsy set of vocal chords and a theatrical flair.

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.”


“From the moment she set foot on stage, I was captivated by DHC.  She’ll tell a story,  ask the audience a question, and people will actually respond! Part of her appeal and magnetism on stage is her ability to be completely honest.”  Allison Volk (Los Angeles, CA)

THE INSTRUMENT …. is her own Invention!

Once upon a time DHC played a hulking 6-foot-tall concert harp, like you see at the back of the orchestra.  But she really wanted the freedom to move around the stage – and the freedom to be able to travel with her instrument.

She had a vision of an electric harp she could strap on like an electric guitar, and put in the luggage hold of a plane.  She created a prototype and took it to Europe’s most visionary harp builder, Joel Garnier.

For the next 20 years Joel’s company, CAMAC harps, worked with DHC to create the harp of her dreams.   The result is the world’s leading electric harp, named after Deborah, the “DHC-Light,” an 11-pound carbon-fibre instrument that can soar over an orchestra – and that she even took on tour with legendary Rock guitarist Steve Vai for a world tour in 2012.

Take a harp. Shrink it down. Strap it on. Plug it in. Deborah Henson-Conant 5/21/16 Pasadena, CA Share on X
