Harry Manx Livestream from The Bailey - 6 Beats Apart

March 27 7:30 to 8:10 pm

Trail & District Arts Council presents Harry Manx as part of the 6 Beats Apart series.

As the provincial health order still prevents us from having live audiences, we have learnt to adapt quickly to bring our shows live to your living room.   

So, our Saturday March 27 performance by Harry Manx will be streamed from The Bailey Theatre into the comfort of your homes as part of our ongoing 6 Beats Apart series.

Blend Indian folk melodies with slide guitar blues, add a sprinkle of gospel and throw in some compelling grooves. It’s a recipe that goes down easy and leaves you hungry for more. 

“Mysticssippi” blues man Harry Manx has been called an “essential link” between the music of East and West, creating musical short stories that wed the tradition of the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas. He has created a unique sound that is hard to forget and deliciously addictive to listen to.

Harry forged his distinctive style by studying at the feet of the masters. First as a sound man in the blues clubs of Toronto, where he worked with a slew of blues legends, and then under a rigorous tutelage with Vishwa Mohan Bhatt in India. Harry played slide guitar for many years before meeting Bhatt in Rajasthan, but he started at the beginning under Bhatt’s tutelage, unlearning most of what he knew about playing a slide instrument. Bhatt invented the 20-stringed Mohan Veena, which has become Harry’s signature instrument, and his teachings led to Harry’s exploration of the connection between Indian ragas and blues scales, which eventually led to the Indo-blues hybrid that has become his style.

Manx believes that “Like many people I’m interested in my own development as a person and that’s represented in my songs, I’m searching for truth through art and spirituality. My songs are a synthesis of everything I’ve absorbed, all my experiences and I share that. I’m glad that it means something to people.”

Manx is a prolific artist, releasing 12 albums in a 12-year span with no signs of stopping. He has received seven Maple Blues Awards, six Juno nominations, the Canadian Folk Music Award in 2005

for Best Solo Artist and won CBC Radio’s “Great Canadian Blues Award” in 2007. His most recent original release, “Om Suite Ohm” was voted by the Montreal daily La Presse as one of only 4 CDs to watch for in 2013. Guitar Player Magazine called it “his most fully realized work to date”.

Show 70 minutes.
