Harry Manx has been dubbed an “essential link” between the music of East and West, creating musical short stories that wed the tradition of the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas. His unique sound is bewitching and deliciously addictive to listen to.
Harry has appeared at many prestigious festivals, world-class theatres, concert halls and infamous Blues clubs around the globe. Playing the Mohan Veena, lap steel, harmonica, stomp box, and banjo, Manx quickly envelops the audience into what has been dubbed “the Harry Zone” with his warm vocals and the hauntingly beautiful melodies of his original songs.
Harry has received three Maple Blues Awards, CBC Radio’s Great Canadian Blues Awards 2007 plus honours from the Canadian Folk Music Awards, Vancouver magazine, Georgia Straight, and the South Australia Blues Society. Other accolades include two Maple Blues awards (for Acoustic Act of the Year with Kevin Breit and Songwriter of the Year) and two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations (with Kevin Breit), for “Best Ensemble” and “Pushing the Boundaries”. In addition, “In Good We Trust” was nominated for a Western Canada Music Award for Outstanding Roots Recording (duo).
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.
