Harry Manx

Three-time Juno nominee Harry Manx, one of the most original Folk-World-Blues performers touring today makes a welcome return to the Cap Folk 'n' Roots series. Born in the U.K. and now residing on Saltspring Island, Manx performs lap slide guitar, blues harp, the six-stringed banjo, and most uniquely the Mohan Veena, a guitar/sitar hybrid created and named by Indian musical guru Vishwa Mohan Bhatt.

Manx is a prolific artist, releasing seven albums in a six-year span with no signs of stopping. His latest CD, a collaboration with Kevin Breit called In Good We Trust, was released on Stony Plain Records in 2007. It has received glowing reviews and a number of award nominations, including two Maple Blues nominations, two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations, and a Western Canada Music Award.

Come along to where east meets west and feast on Harry's soul food stew!
