Harry Manx (Canada)
Friday, March 23 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm
Canadian Harry Manx has been one of the most successful international touring musicians ever to grace stages in Australia. This deeply original multi-instrumentalist has entertained audiences in more than 10 extensive tours since 2001.
The explanation is simple. Harry’s created his own genre, often referred to as the ‘Mystissippi Blues’. His mesmerizing sound is an organic fusion of eastern musical traditions with the Blues. The result is an expressive, moving and unforgettable new world.
His unique toolbox is a fascinating range of conventional acoustic and electric guitars, banjo, harmonica, stomp box, and the Mohan Veena, created by Harry’s Indian mentor Vishwa Mohan Bhatt. His award-winning songs ‘create musical short stories that wed the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas’.
A worldwide festival favorite, Harry’s 15 albums and ceaseless touring have seen him earn a slew of Maple Leaf, Juno and Canadian Folk Awards, nominations, and accolades from musicians and fans alike.
Harry will be accompanied by Sydney-based pianist Clayton Doley for many of the dates as well as a string quartet at various festival shows.
