Event Details

Canadian blues artist Manitoba Hal is widely regarded as one of the country’s most preeminent roots and blues multi-instrumentalists. Guitarist, ukulele master and singer-songwriter Manitoba Hal is a musical renaissance man.

Have a listen:

He began to play the ukulele when he inherited a 1955 Martin uke from his beloved grandfather who told him “you can have it if you learn to play it”. And so, he did, continuing to master the tiny instrument, and proving that the ukulele can be small but mighty as he pulls out powerful riffs and melodies adding background beats with looping technology showcasing the blues in all its passion and groove.

His approach to playing is simple – no flash, just a brilliant understanding of the music, the mood and his audience. In an average year, Hal performs over 150 shows throughout Canada, Europe and Australia. Be it a crowd of one or 1000, Manitoba Hal gives 100% of his energy and ability at each performance to ensure a night to remember.

There will be a 90-minute ukulele workshop, limited to 30 people, during the day starting at 2pm, finishing at 3.30pm and later, a full show, doors at 7.30pm, both within the cozy acoustic gorgeousness of our upstairs Gallery Performance Space. There is a discounted price for the workshop and show combined.

Our Director Paul Bickmore (better known as Bik) spends a lot of his time tracking down a varied, interesting range of performances for us to host here at The Art House.

A seasoned musician himself (as well as being the man who does the sound engineering on the night - something he does extremely well), Bik hand-selects the very best acts to showcase in our gallery space - his criteria?  

Travel information:-

We are a city centre venue and parking can be in short supply.  If you are driving, please make sure you leave plenty of time to find a space click here for a map of where the nearest parking spaces can be found.
