Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

I just saw Harry Manx in concert in Portsmouth Rhode Island last night. A one-man show (well, I suppose two men if I count the sound guy), Harry had maybe eight instruments on hand. Mostly notably present were his Mohan Veena (the holy union of a guitar and a sitar), some crazy banjo that might have been a cookie tin, and his Lowebow.

For those who haven't heard of him (and that's probably most of us in the States), Harry plays this otherworldly mix of delta blues and Indian raga. And since he's not that well known here, he plays very small and intimate venues. Well worth the twenty bucks.

I got this shot of his stage set-up between sets. From right to left, you can pick out the Lowebow, banjo and Veena.
