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.

Quotes & Highlights
- "As a lesson in history, comedy, and a remarkable woman who lived through (and told jokes about) America's transition from Jim Crow to the Harlem Renaissance to the Stonewall riots and the Black Panther Party, it can't be beat." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/an-american-tale/Content?oid=17867505"><em>The Stranger</em></a>
- "Beyond simply a collection of some of her best routines, Owens has created an inside look at this fascinating individual that unfortunately too few people remember ... Howell takes on this character not with fervor but with love and a genuine respect. She not only commands the stage but owns it as she gives a one woman performance that never once felt stale." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.broadwayworld.com/seattle/article/BWW-Reviews-HELLO-DARLINS-at-Langston-Hughes-Remembers-a-Comedy-Pioneer-20130928"><em>Broadway World</em></a>
- "Josephine Howell’s performance was a tour-de-force. She is a singer par excellence, and has the same amazingly expressive face as Moms, which serves any comic well." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.dramainthehood.net/2013/09/hello-darlins-moms-got-something-to-tell-you/"><em>Drama in the Hood</em></a>
