The Street Presents AN EVENING WITH HARRY MANX Wed 14 March 2018 “Harry’s real skill lays in creating a rare musical place where blues, country, folk and Indian classical music co-exist as some spirit force” - Downbeat Canadian multi-instrumentalist Harry Manx has been one of the most successful international touring musicians ever to grace stages in Australia. Harry returns in 2018 to perform at Port Fairy Folk Festival, The Blue Mountains Music Festival and Byron Bluesfest as well as side shows in all mjor centres including here in Canberra. 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. 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. "Watching Harry play tonight I feel like I learned something new…….” Bruce Springsteen, at the International Guitar Festival, New York City And for this 2018 tour , he’ll be showcasing his latest album “Faith Lift”.
