Event Summary: 
“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.” -- Downbeat Magazine

Harry Manx bringing his unique musical style to Quadra Island

The inimitable Harry Manx is coming to the Heriot Bay Inn Saturday, December 1!

This event is Sold Out!

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 Manx' 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 therefore, "creating musical short stories that wed the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas".

Over the last 10 years, Harry Manx has released 11 Albums and 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 accomplishment was receiving yet another Juno Nomination for "Blues Album of the Year", for his release, "Bread and Buddha" in 2010.

Enjoy a fabulous two course dinner (appey & entree, set menu) and an even more fabulous evening of music Saturday December 1; $69/pp. Six o'clock seating. Reserve your seats: call the Inn at 250.285.3322 or toll-free 1.888.605.4545.
