About this Event

Multi-award-winning Harry Manx brings East and West together like no one else can and he’s coming to the Playhouse Cinema with his unique blend of Indian folk melodies mixed with slide guitar blues, a touch of gospel and some absolutely inspired grooves. If you are new to Harry’s music, which has been dubbed “mysticssippi,” we promise you a truly unique musical experience. This is a one-of-a-kind musician with a one-of-a-kind sound.

Harry was a blues-man with a gift for playing the slide guitar. It was what he did and what he loved – until the day that he became a student of Grammy-winner Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, who had invented a 20-string Mohan Veena (similar to a Hawaiian guitar with drone and sympathetic strings like those on a sitar). From that point, Harry’s music and his musical career took a life-changing turn.

Harry studied in India for 12 years and perfected his own unique blend of classical raga and Mississippi Delta music. The sound is like no other you’ve ever heard. Downbeat Magazine describes it this way: ” ….. a rare musical place where blues, country, folk and Indian classical music co-exist as some spirit force.”
