Blue Mountains Music Festival presents the return of
HARRY MANX (CANADA)
Hell Bound for Heaven Tour
“Harry’s real skill lays in creating a rare musical place where blues, country, folk and Indian classical music co-exist as some spirit force”. Downbeat
Canadian multi-‐instrumentalist Harry Manx returns to his fans in Australia with his newest take on his ‘Blues meets Ragas’ explorations. On this, his 13th tour down under, Harry will perform exclusive at the Woodford Folk Festival prior to a national tour later in the year.
He has just released his latest recording, ‘Hell Bound for Heaven’ with fellow Canadian bluesman Steve Marriner. This new album features 6 new Harry Manx originals and has received high acclaim with 5 star reviews.
At Katoomba, he will also be showcasing his 2018 release ‘Faith Lift’, in which Harry created cross-cultural music that references and expands both Indian and western music, and shifts the feel and subtext of his unique sound. Sitting centre stage playing drums and guitars, Harry drives the rhythms forward with deep grooves, soulful patterns and spacious tones. Using his 21-‐stringed mohan veena (Indian slide guitar), a National steel guitar, a banjo, cigar box guitar, his voice, and harmonica to lay down his audible vision, the music carries the audience in a trance-‐like state. The lyrics draw from the works of the mystic poets with words of inspiration woven into story lines about everyday people.
A worldwide festival favorite known for his droll humour as well as musical originality, Harry’s 16 albums and ceaseless touring have seen him earn a slew of Maple Leaf, Juno and Canadian Folk Awards, nominations, and accolades from musicians and fans worldwide.
‘Manx is the man who had already married Hindustani music to the blues and created a bastard progeny that weeps in quarter-tones.’… John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald
“Manx’s goal was always to combine East & West and the performances here show that he has succeeded in forming a seamless whole.”…. John Valenteyn, Maple Blues Magazine
