An Evening in Concert with…HARRY MANX (Kingston)
May 15 – Kingston Grand Theatre – Box Office: 613 530-2050
“Harry Manx likes to colour WAY outside the lines … conjuring songs that are as bewitching as they are unique.” – Guitar Player Magazine
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. From an early age, Manx was on the road—as a soundman in the blues clubs of Toronto, busking on street corners from Brazil to Japan, studying meditation and music in India—and all these influences shine through in his music. A dedicated performer and prolific artist, he has released fourteen CDs, including the recent Faith Lift, garnered a serious stack of awards and toured extensively across Canada, the US, Australia and Europe, playing in soft seat theatres, prestigious festivals and first-rate blues clubs. “A modern day troubadour, Manx sings with an intimate, quiet warmth that makes his shows mesmerizing. 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 “mysticssippi” … 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.
