The Errol Linton Trio, a live blues trio infused with jazz and Caribbean roots, is one of London’s musical treasures and not to be missed.

Three times winner of ‘UK Blues Harmonica Player of the year’, Errol Linton plays eclectic British blues, but with a nod to his Caribbean heritage. He carries the legacy of Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson into the twenty first century, moving the genre forward by combining 50s Chicago blues with gentle Jamaican reggae rhythms. Linton has been featured on radio and TV, his two albums have become British blues milestones regularly spun on the radio by Andy Kershaw and Paul Jones, and his band was rated by the late Charlie Gillett as one of the UK’s greatest live bands. In the words of the late John Walters, BBC Radio 2 producer, “Errol is as good a Harmonica player as anyone can reasonably hope to become, he is the real deal.”

In 1991 a chance meeting with John Walters led to a radio session on the Andy Kershaw Show and in 1993 Errol was featured alongside Big Bill Broonzy in BBC 2’s Arena documentary (Rhythms of the World) called Two Generations of the Blues. Linton released his first album Vibin’ It (Ruby Records) in 1998. Across the UK BBC Radio DJs Charlie Gillett, Paul Jones, John Peel and Andy Kershaw all played the album. In 2001 Linton returned to the studio to cut Roots Stew (Ruby Records). Roots Stew shows Errol’s song writing developing alongside the band’s organic blues-reggae groove.
