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.

I went to this concert because of the great deal offered by Goldstar. There were 3 bands scheduled, The Experience (tribute to Jimi Hendrix), Magic Carpet Ride (tribute to Steppenwolf) and Iron Butterfly. This was my first time to the Showare Center. It was a nice facility with easy access to parking in the same lot as the building. The lighting for the first couple bands was very bad. I couldn't hear the singer or the music very well for The Experience so it was hard to really get into the concert. With the long pauses between songs, the concert seemed to drag out. What started out at 7:30 ended around midnight. Iron Butterfly did a good job even with the lead singer sitting in a chair the whole time due to his health. It was a great price to see them and I am glad I didn't pay more since the music wasn't outstanding and I had to drive 40+ miles to get there.
