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. Add a sprinkle of gospel and some compelling grooves and the result is a “mysticssippi” sound that is deliciously addictive to listen to.
His hypnotic live show was honed on street corners, cafes, bars and festivals worldwide. A five-year tutelage in India under Rajasthani musician Vishwa Mohan Bhatt (Grammy winner with Ry Cooder for A Meeting by the River) learning the mohan veena (a 20-stringed sitar/guitar designed by Bhatt) was the catalyst for Harry’s now signature style.
The prolific Manx has released ten albums in a ten-year span. Manx has just released a compilation CD, Isle of Manx. He also has just completed a third CD collaboration with guitarist Kevin Breit, which will be released on Stony Plain Records in the spring of 2011.
