Errol Linton Quintet

Errol Linton is a renowned British blues musician and a three-time winner of the ‘UK Blues Harmonica Player of the Year’ award. Linton’s music is an eclectic blend of British blues and Caribbean rhythms, paying homage to his Jamaican heritage. He combines 50s Chicago blues with gentle reggae rhythms, taking inspiration from Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson.

In the words of the late John Walters, “Errol is as good a Harmonica player as anyone can reasonably hope to become; he is the real Deal.” Linton’s unique style and excellent skills have earned him numerous accolades, making him one of the most sought-after blues musicians in the UK.

Linton’s journey into the world of blues started with a chance meeting with John Walters, BBC Radio 2 producer, who invited him for a radio session on the Andy Kershaw Show in 1991. Two years later, he featured alongside Big Bill Broonzy in BBC 2’s Arena documentary, ‘Two Generations of the Blues,’ which brought him into the limelight.

Over the years, Linton has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Screaming Jay Hawkins, Bo Diddley, Dr John, and Blind Boys of Alabama. His band has played at various festivals, clubs, and pubs across the UK and Ireland, and they were the first UK artists to perform at the Park Tower Blues Festival in Japan.

Linton’s music is a testament to his songwriting skills, which have developed over the years. His band, comprising guitarist Adam Blake, bass player Lance Rose, piano/keys Petar Zivkovic, and drummers Kenrick Rowe and Gary Williams, creates an urban sound with rural roots designed to get crowds dancing with soulful ska and reggae vibes.

With numerous accolades and performances alongside big names in the music industry, Linton is a force to be reckoned with.
