We are incredibly lucky to be able to welcome Blue Rose Code (aka Ross Wilson) who will be performing an ‘under the wire’ gig for us in Comrie, with his trio. Ross has a big following which is growing rapidly, and I can’t really find the words to describe his work and how special this performer is, so there are some quotes below:
'In the space of only a short few years and two stellar albums, Blue Rose Code, Edinburgh-born Ross Wilson, has gone from song-writing in the obscurity of an East London flat to being celebrated by the industry and fans alike as a legacy artist whose work stands alone. As BBC Radio 3 broadcaster Mary-Anne Kennedy said recently, “Blue Rose Code is one of those rare artists whose work makes you sit up and listen”.’
'Blue Rose Code is Edinburgh-born songwriter Ross Wilson. At the edge of contemporary alt-folk, Wilson's music evokes a meeting of Van Morrison and a young John Martyn, both shipwrecked with a bunch of Motown records.’
'Performing live he is stunning and this reputation led Edith Bowman to personally ask Ross to perform on the launch show of BBC AT The Quay with Texas and Stornoway. Edith described Ross’ performance with a nine piece band, including guest Karine Polwart, as ‘truly special and beautiful’.
His show at the Edinburgh Fringe, sold out so quickly that an extra night was added.
Tickets are £15 available from Hansen’s Kitchen and Comrie Post Office. There are only 80 tickets so don't hang about.
