Electric Harpist Deborah Henson-Conant returns to the Boston Area for a Solo Concert at TCAN, The Center for Arts in Natick ~  Sat. February 10, 2024 8pm

Deborah “DHC” Henson-Conant is returning to TCAN, The Center for Arts in Natick for a single solo show – Sat. Feb. 10, 2024 at 8pm. This is a chance for audiences to see this legendary performer in one of New England’s best listening rooms. 

If you’re thinking of ‘harp’ as in ‘’Celtic Woman” or “New Age Background music,” you’ve got it wrong. The GRAMMY©-Nominated Deborah Henson-Conant (“DHC”) was the first female instrumentalist on the GRP jazz label in the 90’s, debuted her symphony show with the Boston Pops, and has toured with legends like rock guitarist Steve Vai. Her own vibrant compositions for harp and orchestra are now performed by symphonies around the world. Her original music combines music, movement, humor and stories with a range of musical styles inspired by Flamenco, Jazz, Blues, Latin and World music, using a looper pedal to create soundscapes to support virtuosic improvisation.

Now, for the first time since 2020, she returns to The Center for Arts in Natick. “TCAN” is the official go-to place for music, theater, visual arts and movies in the Boston suburbs. The renovated historic firehouse is located in the heart of Natick Center, just outside Boston.

She’s expanded her artistry immensely since 2020; released a new musical on film, developed the new online “Creative Resonance Project,” a training in creative expression – and developed new material she’ll share Feb.10th, along with beloved audience favorites.

She strides on stage like a rock-star, her futuristic solid-body carbon-fibre harp strapped to her waist, pulling sounds you’d never imagine from 32 multi-color strings. She’s the woman who changed the way the world sees the harp – and she’s now so iconic that the world’s top electric harp is named for her, the “DHC”. Her signature instrument, the “DHC” electric body harp, is an instrument she invented in collaboration with the French harp-builder CAMAC – now played by harpists throughout the world.

The composer, performer, and educator got her start in the Boston area, touring as a soloist with the Boston Pops and headlining in the area’s top jazz venues like Scullers and the Regattabar. She went on to receive a Grammy-Nomination for her album of symphonic works, “Invention & Alchemy”, then took a sharp turn and joined  guitar legend Steve Vai in his world tour, reinventing electric guitar and hammond organ parts on electric harp.

Now she travels worldwide – and recently returned from Austria where the Salzburg Symphony featured not just her performance, but her original harp concerto that harpists worldwide are now playing. She also trains harpists worldwide in improvisation.

Her voice has been compared to Carly Simon and Joan Baez and her playing to Chuck Berry and Jimi Hendrix. She, herself has been called “A combination of Leonard Bernstein … and Xena, Warrior Princess” by the Boston Globe.  And her harp playing: In her hands the “DHC Electric Harp” becomes the underpinning for stories of romance, food, failure, life – spoken and sung – from the harp.
