about

Imagine the blues meeting the Acadian shore in a seaside carnival of snake oil salesmen, tattooed women and mermaids! Carney's stealing the gate reciepts share space with fast food vendors and various hucksters. There are all types here. The bluesmen, the lovers and the hungry.

“Manitoba Hal has created something wholly unique and idiosyncratic out of several elements that already existed. He’s not the first guitarist to switch over to ukulele. Nor is he the first musician to use looping pedals. And he’s certainly not the first guy to play the blues. But the way he approaches the combination of those elements, and mixes it with his own musical sensibilities, is just perfect. A tireless live performer, ambassador for the uke, and all-round great musician.” Peter Hodgson - Mix Magazine May 2012

about

Manitoba Hal Shelburne, Nova Scotia

Manitoba Hal proves that the uke can be small but mighty as he pulls out powerful blues riffs and melodies.
