Errol Linton Live
Saturday 6th of June
2020 and the lucky few who'd turned up to Errol Linton's regular Wednesday night gig, on a chilly January evening, at the Effra Tavern were blown away when a quiet guy who'd been sat at the bar, ignored by the barmaid, was given a shout out by Errol and asked to come to play with him and the band. This was no ordinary Joe. He very politely asked to borrow a guitar and 15 minutes of Blues history was made.
Joe Bonamassa had flown in from New York to record his new album at Abbey Road Studios and this amazing guest spot led to Errol playing the harmonica on Joe's latest album. Two months later and this is still the Blues event of the decade so far.
An album launch party at Nell's in London as part of the upcoming Wax Lyrical festival. Following on from the highly acclaimed 2018 LP, 'Packing My Bags', Errol's latest album: 'No Entry' was recorded at the iconic Toe Rag studios. This state of the art Urban Blues features Errol's regular band, including Specials drummer, Kenrick Rowe and percussion legend, Tony Uter. Produced by none other than Liam Watson and Tim Bulleyment. Expect to dance. Save the date: 6 June 2020.
'The Greatest British Blues Performing Artist ...Catch him while you can.'
