Three times winner of Blues Harp Player of the year Errol Linton and his band play eclectic British blues, but with a nod to his Caribbean heritage. Singer, songwriter, harp player and bandleader, Errol carries the legacy of Little Walter, Junior Wells and Sonny Boy Williamson into the twenty first century, moving the genre forward by combining 50’s Chicago blues with gentle Jamaica rhythms. Accompanied by Adam Blake; guitar, Petar Zivkovic; piano, Lance Rose; Double Bass and Kenrick Rowe; drums, his blues is raw and bloody, an urban sound with rural roots. Moving effortlessly from Chicago Shuffle to Kingston Skank without missing a beat, they have gained an unrivalled live reputation on the regular London Blues circuit. ‘The Dub version of Howlin’ Wolf’ MOJO Magazine Support comes from Isle of Wight Rhythm & Blues band The MoonShiners “Electric Chicago Blues from The Medina Delta...”
