Errol Linton Band
We are delighted that Errol will be bringing his band back to Herne Hill after their great gig several years ago. Errol Linton has been playing the Brixton blues for near thirty years. Initially a busker on London streets and metro, Errol was noticed early on by John Walters – John Peel’s celebrated producer – who filmed Errol for a BBC documentary in 1990. A quarter century on and nothing has changed. Certainly, there are many other very talented UK blues musicians – the scene receives almost no media coverage (beyond Cerys Matthews’ championing on her BBC radio shows) – and the scene is far healthier than many might expect. But no other player on these damp isles has the individuality, the looseness, the beauty and wit, that informs Errol's best music.
Band members: Petar Zivkovic: piano/ keys, Lance Rose: bass, Gary Williams: drums, Ritchey Green: guitar - and not forgetting Errol, three times winner of the Best Harmonica Player of the Year at the British Blues Awards.
