Blue Rose Code

Wednesday 10th April 2019 - Starts 8pm

TICKET PRICE: £14

A nomad both geographically and musically, Ross Wilson (Blue Rose Code) writes from the heart – eschewing any specific genre – and the twelve new songs on The Water Of Leith, addressing themes of love, loss, travel, home, accepting the past and embracing the future, are painted with colours of soul, jazz, folk and pop – an eclecticism that has become a hallmark of Blue Rose Code and has seen him compared to John Martyn, Van Morrison and Tom Waits. 

Blue Rose Code were recently featured on Loose Ends (BBC Radio 4), the esteemed Quay Sessions (BBC Radio Scotland) was nominated for Scots Singer Of The Year in the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards 2017, won Scottish Album of the Year 2017 and was also listed as one of the Albums of the Year by The Skinny and No Depression respectively.

‘The Water Of Leith,’ Blue Rose Code’s 4th studio album, released in October, has rightfully been praised to the rafters and was recently hailed by The Skinny magazine as their Scottish Album Of The Year 2017.

“An astonishingly accomplished, pure and sincere record celebrating the next chapter, and the happiness and success that this ever-improving, undeniable talent rightfully deserves.” ***** – The Skinny

“For those of you that long for Van Morrison to return to his days of Caledonian Soul or miss the late John Martyn, just switch your affections to Ross Wilson.” **** – Scottish Daily Express

“Male Artist of the Year 2017” – Fatea Magazine

“Another game-changing masterpiece from Blue Rose Code…” – No Depression

“A wonderful album” 9/10 – Americana-UK

**** – Acoustic Magazine

**** – RNR magazine

“This album deserves your undivided attention.” –  Maverick magazine

“From beginning to end The Water of Leith is an absolute aural delight.” 9/10 – God Is In The TV

“It doesn’t need categorisation, does it?  It’s just great music, beautiful music, music to make you think, and to lose yourself in.

All I know is, this album makes my heart swell.  Filled with emotion and yearning and exploration of Scotland inside and out, it’s a splendid edifice.  Here’s to its architect!” – Ian Rankin
