“Canada’s most versatile and expressive blues player” is heading for South Yorkshire.

At least that is how Billboard Magazine has described Harry Manx, who is performing at Doncaster’s Roots Music Club this week.

Born on the Isle of Man, Harry spent his childhood in Canada, before travelling the world in his teens.

He is often referred to as the “Mysticssippi Blues Man” because of his work fusing Eastern music with the blues, following work as a sound engineer in Canada and then spending time with Indian mentor Vishwa Mohan Bhatt.

A concert spokesman said: “Harry creates musical short stories that wed the blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas. Audiences are drawn into his warm vocals and haunting beautiful melodies.

“It’s going to be a great night.”

Harry Manx plays the Roots Music Club, The Ukrainian Centre, Beckett Road, Doncaster, on Friday, November 6, from 8pm. Support comes from Doncaster blues player Frank Carline.

Tickets are £12 on the door, or £10 in advance from www.wegottickets.com/rootsmusicclubdoncaster
