Grammy-nominated electric harp legend Deborah Henson-Conant (“DHC”) brings her riveting performance style the Crosby Center in Belfast, ME on Saturday, August 24th at 7:30pm.  Her shows combine music, humor, and stories with a range of musical styles that fuse Blues, Flamenco, Jazz, Musical Theater and straight out inspiration.


AND… this will be a “Harp-Breaker Show! What is that you ask?

At selected shows DHC invites local harpists to join her on stage for a “Harp-Breaker Experience.” The “HarpBreakers” are an ensemble of harp players – of all ages, sizes, playing-levels, and harp-types, joined for a joyous. semi-spontaneous suite of pieces – that play  on stage at the concert with DHC. Find out more about the program HERE – especially if you’re a harp player who wants to join in!

Deborah Henson-Conant is a GRAMMY©-Nominated one-woman orchestra. With electric harp, voice and a looper pedal she layers sounds in real time, then weaves solo lines and vocals above it.

Her signature instrument is an 11lb carbon-fiber electric harp, designed specifically for her by the CAMAC Harp Company in France, it’s now one of the fastest-selling new harp models in the world and was named after her. In her 2018 TEDx talk she tells the story of how conceived of the instrument and what it took to bring it to reality.  Click HERE to learn more AND see the video.

Forget the demure harpist – forget the Classical Music — forget dozing off in the back row. DHC is a showman, entertainer and solid musician who’s been compared to musical greats from Leonard Bernstein to Elvis Presley.

Her voice is compared to Carly Simon and Joan Baez; her playing to Chuck Berry and Jimi Hendrix; and her humor to musical comedian Victor Borge and even Eddie Izzard.

Her shows, her life, her instrument, her workshops and her music are all about transformation — all tied together by powerful, funny, affirming stories and universal humor.

Legendary “Tonight Show” trumpeter Doc Severinsen calls her the “Wild Woman of the Harp,” iconic rock guitarist Steve Vai says she’s the “Jimi Hendrix of the Harp.”

She’s toured with the Boston Pops, opened for Ray Charles at Tanglewood, jammed onstage with Bobby McFerrin and offstage with Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler. She’s been featured on television shows from Charlie Rose to Joan Rivers, and “The View” and in two full-length PBS music specials.
