Deborah Henson-Conant LIVE in Concert
July 27, 2019, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| $23 – $26
Grammy-Nominated vocalist and electric harpist Deborah Henson-Conant (“DHC”) travels the world with the instrument she invented – the “DHC Electric Harp” – but it all started for her at “The Celebration Barn” in South Paris, ME where she first came as a student of the Barn’s founder, Tony Montanaro, 3 decades ago… https://www.hipharp.com/blog/26896
Fast forward to 2019: She uses a looper pedal to layer sounds and create rhythmic grooves and improvises over them with her “DHC-Light”. She combines styles and genres, focusing on styles that offer opportunities for physical expression — like Blues, Flamenco and theater-inspired music. “All my work is about invention – on the spot, in the moment – and the combination of story and music with physical gesture you can actually hear” she says.
This physical expression is something she learned at the Celebration Barn, studying with Tony Montanaro.
This intimate New England appearance is a chance to see the master of an instrument she conceived, up-close and personal – just hands, harp, looper-pedal, voice – and pure invention, on the spot where she learned to be free with her instrument, The Celebration Barn Theater stage.
