The New York Times called him “deliciously addictive” and said when you listen to Harry Manx “you are listening to an original.”

Seven-time Maple Blues award winner, Folk Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, six Juno nominations…..welcome to the Harry Zone. English-born Canadian Harry Manx plays a unique style of music which is sometimes known as “Mysticssippi” for his melding of Blues and Indian Classical melodies. Harry delivers his live show with a variety of stringed instruments including the Mohan Veena (Indian slide guitar), drums, guitars, banjo & harmonica. Musically Harry lives where the depth of Indian music meets the deep groove of the Blues.

Downbeat Magazine said that “Manx’s real talent lies in creating a place where Blues and Indian Classical are a seamless fit”.

Billboard Magazine called Harry “Canada’s most expressive Blues player”.


MORE INFO

Canadian Harry Manx has been one of the most successful international touring musicians ever to grace stages in Australia, performing at Byron Bay Bluesfest, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Blue Mountains Music Festival, Caloundra Music Festival and Woodford as well as shows all over the country. This deeply original multi-instrumentalist has entertained audiences in more than 10 extensive tours since 2001.

The explanation for this is simple. Harry has created his own genre of music, often referred to as the ‘Mystissippi Blues’. His mesmerising 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 favourite, 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.
