Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be in the creative laboratory of an artist’s mind?  The Pluck Harp Cabaret is a series of mini-showcases live on stage and remote via video in which the performers in my “Harness Your Muse” mentorship share their yearlong creative odysseys and show a small segment of what they are working on.

It’s an incredible chance to see what a varied group of creative minds, of various technical levels, life experiences and passions can express using a harp.

The Pluck Cabaret laboratory concerts are being held live in the Regent Underground Theater in Arlington, MA and shared via livestream at ConcertWindow.com.  You can see images from the past 2 performances in the slideshow at this blog, you can BUY TIX HERE in advance or at the door for the live show or purchase tix for the livestream HERE.
