HARRY MANX (all ages)
Tuesday, May. 15 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM$40
“Harry Manx likes to colour WAY outside the lines .. conjuring songs that are as bewitching as they are unique.”
Harry Manx speaks to the soul with his calm spirituality and distinctive sound. Dubbed the essential link between the music of East and West, he is a master of the musical short story that seamlessly weds the tradition of the ‘earthly’ American Blues with the depth of classical ‘heavenly’ Indian ragas.
“A modern day troubadour, Manx sings with an intimate, quiet warmth that makes his shows mesmerising. The subtle interplay between the haunting notes of the sitar and the gentle, rhythmic groove of the blues gives his songs a beautiful sensuality that defies comparison.” – Eugene Weekly
Whether playing the Mohan Veena (a 20-string sitar/guitar hybrid), lap steel, harmonica, stomp box, dobro, banjo or cigar-box guitar, Manx draws audiences in to “the Harry Zone” – a meditative introspective place – and then pulls them back to ‘now’ when he moves to more Western music. He says, “I love to see that working – that effect on the audience. My goal has always been to draw the audience as deep as possible into the music.”
The signature style of Harry Manx is “mysticsippi” – a blend of Indian folk melodies and slide guitar blues, with a sprinkling of gospel, distinctive hypnotic vocals and poetic lyrics – a well-tested recipe that goes down easy and leaves listeners hungry for more.
