Dog My Cat - Harry Manx

 Catalogue #: NBM0004

  The Canadian Independent Music Awards honours Dog My Cat with the 2002 award for Best Blues Album of the Year!

NorthernBlues Music
is proud to announce the release of Harry Manx's debut CD, Dog My Cat, which breaks significant new ground in the blues world. A virtual one-man-band, Manx draws the listener in with his mastery of the lap slide guitar, harmonica, banjo, and vocals. But what makes Harry Manx truly stand out is the fact that he also plays the Mohan veena - a 20-string Indian slide guitar.

Manx spent five years in India studying under the creator of this guitar/sitar hybrid, V.M. Bhatt, who won a Grammy award with Ry Cooder in 1994 for their CD Meeting by the River. Manx links east and west with his unique approach to slide guitar and "a voice that brings to mind the smoothness and edge of a nine-year-old bourbon." (Monday Magazine, March 2001)

On this CD, you will hear the beautiful integration of Indian sitar and blues slide on
"Song for William". You will hear the elevating "Lay Down My Worries", the quiet intensity of "Sunday Morning Ascension", and you will hear the traditional sounds of India in "Rag Bihag (Dusk Rag)".

Dog My Cat is hitting Canadian stores in the next week or so, and Harry Manx is currently touring the Canadian blues festival circuit including the Great Canadian Blues Festival in Toronto and Ottawa's Cisco Systems Blues Fest.Dog My Cat will be released in the United States on August 7th.
