If you haven’t got your tickets for the next Bluesroom at Ryde Theatre yet (what have you been doing?), then you’ll be pleased to hear that you can now get them from Waterstones Bookshop, in Newport High Street.
On Saturday 3rd November, Errol Linton, three times winner of Blues Harp Player of the year, and his Blues Vibe band will play eclectic British blues, but with a nod to his Carribbean heritage.
Singer, songwriter, harp player and bandleader, Errol carries the legacy of Little Walter, Junior Wells and Sonny Boy Williamson into the twenty first century, moving the genre forward by combining 50’s Chicago blues with gentle Jamaica rhythms.
Accompanied by double bass, guitar, piano and drums, his blues is raw and bloody, an urban sound with rural roots. The Blues Vibe is one of the most real, unpretentious down home blues bands around. Moving effortlessly from Chicago Shuffle to Kingston Skank without missing a beat, they have gained an unrivalled live reputation in the regular London Blues circuit.
Sounds excellent and well worth the ticket price.
