About Deborah Henson-Conant:

To describe Deborah Henson-Conant is nearly impossible. She’s a Grammy-nominated, genre-bending, blues-flamenco-celtic-funk-folk-jazz-classical dynamo. She’s written and produced her own one-woman shows, and orchestrated her many symphony shows. She’s performed in theaters, clubs and concert halls throughout the US and Europe - and on PBS stations across America in her Public Television special Invention & Alchemy. She’s collaborated onstage with scientists, journalists and actors in her cross-discipline exploration series, “Inviting Invention” - and with orchestras, directors, theaters and other artists in countless performances.

She’s committed to bringing humour, beauty and audience-involvement to the stage in new works of music theater, and to reinventing the electric harp as the foremost crossover instrument of the 21st century.

She’s a storyteller and a composer. She solos and wails like a rock guitarist. She turns music into theater and theater into something lyrical. See her once and you’ll never look at the harp the same way again.

“The transformation of my harp is a metaphor for what happens when we break personal stereotypes and authentically express who we are ... and that's what I try to do in every show.” - Deborah Henson-Conant

Music

Step into the mind of Deborah Henson-Conant. A mind where watermelons can swing their hips like Elvis, dogs go back to school to get their pedigrees and Jimi Hendrix turns up the distortion on his solid-body electric harp in Heaven.
