Manitoba Hal is a guitarist, songwriter and ukulele player.

Using a combination of looping technology and effects he creates a performance that is one-of-a-kind.His combination of finger picking and strumming creates an instantly accessible sound that compliments his fresh and inventive originals and arrangements of traditional blues. Manitoba Hal is a consummate blues man, having toured Canada extensively with a ukulele.

Picturing him in his 100 year old cottage in Nova Scotia, one can’t help wonder how someone can sound as though he grew up in the Deep South of the States and playing raw, swamp, delta, Cajun and zydeco style blues.

Peter Hodgson of Mixdown Magazine writes “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.
