Sara Henya grew up in the science-fiction and fantasy community, and her upbringing has influenced her music greatly. From her chosen instrument of the harp, to her ethereal sound, to her many tattoos, her music can’t help but be different from what you’ve heard before.
After performing extensively in and around Philadelphia at venues like The Grape Room, The Barbary, and Sprout Music Collective, Sara Henya released her debut EP entitled, “Small World Alchemy,” on May 20th, 2018. Her EP has received widespread radio play on Folk and Alternative programs such as Out of the Woods, Power Folk, Womenspace, and Radio 104.5’s Live at 5. Sara Henya has been embraced by both mainstream and niche audiences. As well as touring music venues around the East Coast, she’s created a following at Science Fiction Conventions such as Balticon and Arisia.
Depending on the venue, Sara Henya uses two different styles of harp; a pedal harp and a lever harp. Her pedal harp, a Lyon and Healy Style 100, is a full size harp, similar to what an orchestra would use. Her lever harp, a Lyon and Healy Ogden, is smaller and more portable, but is designed to have the same broad sound of a harp much larger. Other than size, the main difference between the two is the mechanism to change the tuning or key.
