Deborah Henson Conant has been re-releasing some older material from albums into themes as download collections on her website. Below is a live performance of Danny Boy, a previous unreleased track from the Celtic Collection.
We love Deb and only she can give us a Hendrix styled electric harp rendition of “Star Spangled Banner”. You’ve gotta love this for 4th of July!
It’s rude to ask of a ladies age however as Deborah is showing, the older we get, the more we should celebrate! She is holding a two night birthday bash concert on the 21st and 22nd of November in Newburyport, MA. She posted in her e-mail that this year is particularly special as she will now older than her mother would have ever been. She makes a cracking show so if you can, visit and prepare to be charmed.
She’s at it again! Deborah is back with a new show that’ll be lasting for two weeks at Central Square Theatre, MA starting on the 13th of August. The show will be entitled “What the Hell are you doing in the waiting room for Heaven?” More one-woman band fun, drama and story telling will be abound!
Harpist Deborah Henson-Conant is again keeping herself very busy this summer by running a musician school. As one of the forerunners in the harp world, Deborah is looking to pass on knowledge of stage performance and persona and even probably a little technique. It’s great to see performing artists really getting involved with things like this and I’d jump at the chance if it were in my neck of the woods! So if you’re a harpist and you can get to Maine (USA) then have a looksee here
