Following in the footsteps of popular single-instrument showcases like Banj-O-Rama, Accordi-O-Rama and Zing Go the Strings comes the inaugural Harp-O-Rama. This pan-cultural concert features legendary Celtic harpist Máire Ni Chathasaigh (who has been called “the greatest Celtic harper of our age”) and her partner, guitarist Chris Newman. They’ll perform alongside the likes of Brooklyn kora player Kane Mathis and Correo Aereo, featuring Abel Rocha and Madeleine Sosin playing traditional harp styles of Venezuela, Mexico and original compositions. Adding to the whimsy will be interstitial video performances by Harpo Marx -- yes, that Harpo Marx, who was not only a film star but also an extraordinary classical harpist -- and the namesake of this event.

Absolutely fantastic. This is one of the best performances I've seen - of any kind. The music is energetic and powerful, but when coupled with the dance the entire event is intimate and viscerally pleasing. Karen Lugo is almost otherworldly while her partner was entertainingly funny. The more modern take on flamenco was unexpected and very welcome, suggesting there's much creativity at work.
