Mystissippi Blues

Legendary musician Harry Manx plays the Fly for one night only!

Bonjour Holiday presents the return of acclaimed Canadian musician Harry Manx, who will perform across the country this March and April.

As one of the most successful international touring musicians ever to grace Australian stages, Harry will perform at Port Fairy Folk Festival, The Blue Mountains Music Festival and Byron Bluesfest as well as side shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra and Perth. Freo’s famous Fly By Night will host Manx’s only WA show on Saturday 24 March.

This deeply original multi-instrumentalist has created his own genre, often referred to as the ‘Mystissippi Blues’. His mesmerising sound is an organic fusion of eastern musical traditions with the Blues. The result is an expressive, moving and unforgettable new world. His unique toolbox is a fascinating range of conventional acoustic and electric guitars, banjo, harmonica, stomp box, and the Mohan Veena – created by Harry’s Indian mentor Vishwa Mohan Bhatt.

A worldwide festival favourite, Harry has earned a slew of Maple Leaf, Juno and Canadian Folk Awards, nominations, and accolades from musicians and fans alike. February 2014 saw the release of Harry’s 12th studio recording – ‘Ohm Suite Ohm’. It features Harry’s Bollywood electric slide guitar, instrumentals, original songs, a cover of John Coltrane’s ‘A Love Supreme’, plus guest vocalists and international collaborators. In 2015 came his first instrumental album ’20 Strings and the Truth.’ For this tour, Harry will be showcasing his latest album ‘Faith Lift’, playing a number of instruments accompanied by the Sydney Lyric Quartet.
