Hard as it is to believe but Errol Linton has been playing the Brixton blues for nearly thirty years. Initially a busker on London streets and the London Underground, Errol was noticed early on by John Walters – John Peel’s celebrated producer – who filmed Errol in 1990 for a BBC documentary. But even during that era of mega-CD sales, no record label dared take a chance on the Lambeth youth who sounded like no one else.

Linton has his own take on the genre, playing reggae-inflected electric blues free of histrionic soloing. His music is warm, loose and very Caribbean – think how the mighty Mississippi river flows into the Gulf Of Mexico just as the music from Texas to New Orleans filtered through to Jamaica via radio stations and sound systems.

Errol was one of the first acts to perform on the Docks Academy stage after the long Covid hiatus for live music and we’re looking forward to another stellar night of British blues at the Church!

He will be joined on the bill by a warm-up act who will be confirmed closer to the gig.
