Three times winner of the British Best Harmonica Player of the Year Blues Awards, Errol Linton is a harmonica wizard from Brixton, Jamaican descent, a singer, a songwriter, a painter and the hero of the London Underground, where he played his unique and highly original blend of blues with hints of reggae for 20 years!

Although countless thousands have walked past Errol as he busks in London’s underground, blowing his harp through a small amplifier, Errol Linton remains largely unknown to most music fans. Linton is one of London’s well hidden treasures. The Brixton harmonica blaster, singer and songwriter has made a living
playing his highly original and distinctive blues & reggae-flavoured songs for two decades.

‘I sing the Brixton blues, with an obvious Jamaican influence,’ says Linton. ‘My knowledge of Jamaica comes from stories told by my parents and friends. The food, the history, the politics have seemed to always been present in my life, as well as reggae and ska,’ adds Errol, ‘Of course, I used to play Big Youth, Bob Marley and The Staples Singers on the harp but when I first heard Sonny Boy Williamson, his playing just blew me away. Really, it is the harp which led me to the blues’. errollinton.com
