‘The Greatest British Blues Performing Artist…Catch him while you can.’ Cerys Matthews.
Errol Linton appears at Stroud Sub Rooms next Friday, September 24th. His live shows are legendary, his band exceptional. As Joe Bonamassa said of him recently, when he joined him on stage at a London pub; ‘the most authentic Chicago Blues I’ve heard in a long time.’
A musician for 30 years, Errol signed to Bra$$dog Records in 2016, releasing two studio albums so far. ‘Packing My Bags’ described as ‘Chess Records meets Studio One,’ continues to receive much critical acclaim and radio play and won Errol a 2019 Jazz FM nomination for Best International Blues Act.
His new album, recorded at the iconic ToeRag Studios, is already a favourite with radio stations and music reviewers. ‘No Entry’ with its unique mix of blues, ska, funk and soul is fast becoming the best UK Blues album of all time.
The Achievers are one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed bands on the UK Blues and Roots Music scene. With a reputation for innovation and originality they prove that soul, groove and song-craft still matter in the blues.
Based in Stroud but touring UK and Europe since 2017, The Achievers’ live reputation has catapulted them from near-complete obscurity to rave reviews and big-stage appearances across the world. In September 2019 the band won one of the most prestigious accolades in British blues music when they were selected to represent the UK at the International and European Blues Challenges in 2020.
With their infectious rhythms, joyful melodies and four-part harmonies The Achievers stand proudly as British blues and roots outliers. A rare home-town appearance will see them performing tracks from their new critically acclaimed album ‘The Lost Arc’ which reached number one in the Independent Blues Broadcasters Charts and received radio play by Cerys Matthews on BBC RADIO 2.
