The Achievers + Errol Linton

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 & 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 & Roots outliers. A rare home-town appearance will see them performing tracks from their new critically acclaimed album 'The Lost Arc' which reached #1 in the Independent Blues Broadcasters Charts and received radio play by Cerys Matthews on BBC RADIO 2.
