Harry Manx & Kevin Breit - JubileeBorn on the Isle of Man now living on B.C.’s Saltspring Island, Manx draws rich, Ry Cooder-like atmospherics from his laptop and East Indian slide guitar. Breit, an equally gifted picker from McKerrow, Ont. whose credits include Cassandra Wilson’s Grammy-winning New Moon Daughter, has been winning converts with his Toronto band Sisters Euclid. Together, they offer inventive versions of Hendrix and the Doobie Brothers and conjure real string magic on their own mystical blues tunes. A pairing worth rejoicing.
