What can you expect from a DHC show?

She strides on stage like a rock-star, with a powerful chrome-silver triangle, strung with 32 multicolor strings, an instrument invented specifically for her by the CAMAC company, in France.

She’s the harpist your parents never warned you about — the world’s premiere electric harpist. She plays music from Blues to Flamenco, she sings and she talks to the audience. She “dresses like a showgirl, plays the pants off the harp and tells tall tales with the ease of a stand-up comic. Imagine a talkative Harpo Marx in a mini-skirt and you begin to get the picture” (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

“Dazzling harp playing, gorgeous jazz/pop singing, comic timing and impressive songwriting…” Austin-American Statesman

“It’s her dazzling range and depth of technique, combined with a warmly engaging energetic stage manner, that ultimately makes this such a memorable show …” (SW Metro – Edinburgh, Scotland)

“Virtuoso out-of-the box harpist…known as the rockin’ bad girl of the harp world. She took the ancient instrument off its pedestal, cocked it on her hip, and made it play everything…” -NPR: On Point

About the Artist

DEBORAH HENSON-CONANT (“DHC”) is a GRAMMY®-Nominated composer, performer, singer, songwriter, entertainer, humorist and the world’s foremost electric harpist.

Guitar Legend Steve Vai calls her “The Jimi Hendrix of the Harp,” NPR’s Scott Simon compared her to a “lovechild of André Previn and Lucille Ball.”

She sings and plays electric harp internatinally. She composes and solos with symphonies. She performs one-woman shows and solo concerts.

She debuted with the Boston Pops, opened for Ray Charles at Tanglewood, had her own music special on PBS, jammed onstage with Bobby McFerrin & Mason Williams, offstage with Steven Tyler.

She’s been featured on TV including CBS “Sunday Morning,” NBC‘s “Today Show” and NPR‘s “Weekend Edition.” For the past 20 years she’s collaborated with CAMAC Harps in France to develop the cutting-edge electric harp that’s named after her, the “DHC” – a carbon-fibre electric harp she wears as she plays it.

Wanna take pictures or video of the show? You can!

The only caveats are: no flash during the show, and no big or noisy cameras that might distract your neighbors.

Email us at least a week in advance to let us know if you’ll be taping or photographing so we can arrange a waiver of the theater’s no-photos-or-taping policy for you, or let you know if there are any problems with cameras at the venue.
