Blue Rose Code
Wednesday 7th August, 2019
The Lighthouse Spiegeltent
This is a seated event.
A nomad both geographically and musically, Edinburgh-born Ross Wilson writes from the heart, eschewing any specific genre, and the twelve songs on new album ‘The Water Of Leith’, addressing themes of love, loss, travel, home, accepting the past and embracing the future, are painted with colours of folk, jazz, soul 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.
“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
