Academy Theatre presents An Evening in Concert with Harry Manx

Date:Sunday, May 13, 2018
Time:7:30 p.m.
Location:    Academy Theatre (2 Lindsay St. S., Lindsay)
Harry Manx speaks to the soul with his calm spirituality and distinctive sound. A dedicated performer and prolific artist, he has released 14 CDs, including the recent Faith Lift, garnered a serious stack of awards and toured extensively across Canada, the US, Australia and Europe, playing in soft seat theatres, prestigious festivals and first-rate blues clubs. Whether playing the Mohan Veena (a 20-string sitar/guitar hybrid), lap steel, harmonica, stomp box, dobro, banjo or cigar-box guitar, Manx draws audiences in to ‘the Harry Zone” (a meditative introspective place) and then pulls them back to ‘now’ when he moves to more Western music, his signature “mysticssippi” style (a blend of Indian folk melodies and slide guitar blues, with a sprinkling of gospel, distinctive hypnotic vocals and poetic lyrics) is a well-tested recipe that goes down easy and leaves listeners hungry for more.
