September 10, 2009 1:45 PM | Entertainment

Harry ManxThis year’s Winnipeg Folk Festival Concert Series will see blues man Harry Manx bring his unique sound to the West End Cultural Centre on Tuesday, October 27.

Manx plays lap steel, banjo, harmonica, and his custom-made Mohan veena — a 20-stringed combination sitar guitar — to create musical short stories informed by blues tradition and classical Indian ragas called “mysticssippi.”

Recently calling Salt Spring Island, B.C. home, Manx has lived all over the world, in places such as Japan, India and Europe.

Tickets to the show are $25 in advance at the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store (211 Bannatyne Avenue) and Ticketmaster, or $30 at the door.
