The Errol Lynton Band

Errol Linton Band

Three times winner of the Best Harmonica Player of the Year at the British Blues Awards, Errol Linton is a harmonica wizard from Brixton (of Jamaican descent), a singer, a songwriter, a painter and the hero of the London Underground, where he played his unique and highly original blend of blues with hints of reggae for 20 years!

Following the release of his critically acclaimed 3rd album, Mama Said in 2011, his songs can now be heard on national and regional BBC radio and Jazz FM. Brixton born and bred, Errol funded the production costs for his latest album from busking for over 15 years and blends Chicago style blues with his Jamaican and London roots. But he’s playing much bigger gigs now and has supported Dr John and Screaming Jay Hawkins.

The Champion Hillbillies

The Champion Hillbillies

The Champion Hillbillies won their champion title not simply because they all reside on or about Champion Hill. It's also because they're the champion rowdy hillbilly band in the hills of South London. They have played many venues in them hills, as far east as the Kidbrooke Beer Festival and as far west as Brixton's Windmill and Pop Brixton. In 2017, they left the hills to perform in the woods of the Wilderness Festival. But whether they're invited to play or they just turn up and start busking, the Champion Hillbillies most enjoy playing near beer.
