She strides on stage like a rock-star, strapped into a futuristic electric harp, with 32 multi-color strings. She's the woman who changed the way the world sees the harp.

She's Grammy-nominated electric harp legend and innovator, Deborah Henson-Conant - known as "DHC" - with the instrument she invented: the "DHC Electric Harp."

On stage DHC combines movement, humor and stories with music inspired by Blues, Latin, Flamenco, Jazz and Musical Theater.

If you're thinking 'Celtic Woman" or "New Age Background music," you've got it wrong. DHC was the primary female instrumentalist on the GRP jazz label in the 90's. Her original Latin/Blues music is enhanced by her use of a looper pedal to create spontaneous soundscapes, layer upon layer, building them in front of the audience in real time - and then using them as a bed for virtuosic improvisation.

As a technical innovator, DHC has collaborated for more than two decades with the world's cutting-edge harp company, CAMAC harps in France, to develop what's become the most popular electric harp in the world, a carbon-fibre wearable electric harp named after her, the "DHC."

Since her last performance at TCAN in 2018 she's completed a new musical, created an international online improvisation school for harpists (Hip Harp Academy). She's also developed a slew of new material she'll be sharing Feb. 1st, along with beloved audience favorites like her Grammy-Nominated "The Nightingale."

Her special guest, Ute Gfrerer is an international cabaret star. As a special feature of this Feb. 1st show, the two will share a side of DHC most audiences never see: a 3-song preview from DHC's one-woman musical "The Letter."

The Center for Arts in Natick "TCAN" is the the official go-to place for music, theater, visual arts and movies in the Boston 'burbs.
