Harry Manx with special guests, the Esca Quartet

May 5, 2018 | 7 pm

Harry Manx has spent years fusing eastern musical traditions with the blues, switching effortlessly between conventional guitars, harmonica, and banjo and the decidedly different Mohan veena, a 20-stringed instrument invented by Harry's Indian mentor Vishwa Mohan Bhatt. Manx is often referred to as the “Mysticssippi” Blues Man, because of his expertise in melding both East and West music together and he has created a unique sound that is hard to forget and deliciously addictive to listen to, or as Frank Hadley of Downbeat Magazine wrote: “Manx’s real skill lays in creating a rare musical place where blues, country, folk and Indian classical music co-exist as some spirit force.”

Harry has released over a dozen albums and has garnered a room full of awards including, seven Maple Blues Awards, six Juno nominations, the Canadian Folk Award in 2005 for Best Solo Artist and won CBC Radio’s Great Canadian Blues Award in 2007. His most recent release, Faith Lift, revisits many of his earlier classics this time arranged and performed with a string quartet. The new arrangements have taken on a whole new life of their own with the addition of the strings and Harry will be bringing Montreal's Esca Quartet with him for this performance. Esca is Edith Fitzgerald on second violin, Sarah Martineau on viola, Camille Paquette-Roy on cello and Amélie Lamontaigne on first violin. All powerhouse musicians in their own right, this is going to be a spectacular show. Visit Harry's website here.
