Electric Harpist Deborah Henson-Conant NYC Concert Friday, March 21st

Known as the “wild woman of the harp," Grammy-nominated composer/performer Deborah Henson-Conant brings her fusion of music, theater, stories and humor to Manhattan's Symphony Space. The self-produced One Way... and Another showcases two separate concerts: One Way @ 7:30pm featuring her favorite works from the past 15 years; and ...and Another @ 9:30pm premiering new pieces. Both concerts are soaked with cross-genre music ranging in style from flamenco and blues to heart-wrenching ballads, all complimented by Henson-Conant's singing and story-telling.

About Deborah: When she found herself chafing under the confines of the classical music world, she developed her own style of swing and Latin jazz by emulating jazz pianists, guitarists and horn players. She explored her instrument's fascinating roots in other cultures, from Mexico to the Celtic Isles. She then incorporated these elements into her own compositions, landed a record contract with the pre-eminent contemporary jazz label at the time (GRP) and became known as the world's premiere jazz harpist.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
