× Harry Manx In Concert

at the Rossland Miners Union Hall

Harry Manx has been called an “essential link” between the music of the East and West – creating musical short stories that wed the tradition of the blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas.

Manx has established a unique Indo-blues hybrid that is hard to forget and incredibly addictive to listen to. He has forged his distinctive style by studying with many legends, first as a sound-man in the blues clubs of Toronto during his formative years, and then under a rigorous tutelage with Vishwa Mohan Bhatt in India, where he also learned the voicings of Indian music – a subtle art that only comes with years of practice. In fact, Bhatt was the inventor of the 20-stringed Mohan Veena, which has become Manx’s signature instrument!

Blend Indian folk melodies with slide guitar blues, add a sprinkle of gospel and some compelling grooves and you’ll get Manx’s unique “mysticssippi” flavour. It’s hard to resist, easy to digest and keeps audiences coming back for more.

A prolific artist, Manx has released 12 albums in as many years with no signs of slowing down. He has also received seven Maple Blues Awards, six Juno Award nominations and a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Solo Artist.

“Manx’s real skill lays in creating a rare musical place where blues, country, folk and Indian classical music co-exist as some spirit force.” Frank Hadley, Downbeat Magazine
