Harry Manx will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 25, at Strand Theatre, 345 Main St. in Rockland.

The Canadian native fuses eastern musical traditions with the blues, switching effortlessly between conventional guitars, harmonica, banjo and the 20-stringed Indian Mohan veena. Manx’s mix of folksy Americana and trance-inducing traditional ragas truly pushes the boundaries of a genre long thought past innovation.

Over the last 10 years, Manx has released 11 albums and has garnered multiple awards including seven Maple Blues Awards, six Juno nominations, a Canadian Folk Award for Best Solo Artist, and CBC Radio’s “Great Canadian Blues Award.”

Tickets cost $20 in advance, $25 at the door.
