Manx Folk Music Links East And West

Who: Harry Manx
Where: Gallipoli Legion Club
When: Thursday March 23, 2006

BLENDING Indian folk melodies with blues, gospel and compelling grooves, Harry Manx's live performances have kept audiences coming back for more since the early '80s.

Manx was born on the Isle of Man, spent his childhood in Canada and lived in Europe, Japan, India and Brazil during his teens, when he performed on street corners, in cafes, bars and at festivals.

With a particular passion for Indian music, he was tutored by Rajasthani Indian musician Vishwa Mohan Bhatt (a Grammy award winner with Ry Cooder for A Meeting By The River ).

Manx has been called an essential link between the music of eastern and western societies, creating musical short stories by combining elements of the blues with classical Indian ragas.

He will bring his live show to Newcastle when he performs at the Gallipoli Legion Club in Hamilton tomorrow night.

Tickets are selling fast at $35 or $30 for concessions.
