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.

We attended the Makana concert on November 7, 2013. It was rainy and windy outside but inside the audience was transported to heavenly Hawaii.
Makana has incredible talent. He played traditional Hawaiian Slack Key along with the new cuts from his current album. It seemed that I was hearing the traditional songs /music for the first time because of the depth of his music and voice. He played the piano, ukulele and shared lots of talk story . It was the very best concert I've been to in years and I have a new favorite Slack Key artist...Makana!
The Benaroyal Hall is a wonderful venue. We sat in the back but the acoustics and line of vision were perfect .
This performance does not include the Seattle Symphony.
