    If you like Harry's music, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt (Harry's teacher) did an excellent album with Ry Cooder in '93 called "A Meeting By The River", which has a similar blend of delta blues with classical Hindustani. A must-listen for Manx fans, and I often wonder if that is what influenced Harry's musical journey.

    This guy supported a band I have worked for in Sheffield :) He was amazing live, and for one man and various acoustic guitars, he stormed that stage :).

    I've been a fan for a while now, and saw Harry live for the first time yesterday in Brisbane. He was fantastic. I can't wait until he's back in OZ on a tour.

    My sis in law lives on a converted fishing boat on Salt Spring Island which is where she discovered him. She introduced me to his music about a year ago and I love it. It seems appropriate to me that he would live in a place that looks like his music sounds
