THE sparkling Blue Rose Code will do the honours and open the 10th anniversary Glasgow Americana Festival in October. On Wednesday 5th October in St Andrew’s In The Square.
Man behind the music, Ross Wilson has rightly won huge praise for live, sell-out performances including joyous sessions for the BBC.
And latest album, And Lo! The Bird is On The Wing has thrilled fans and critics alike with its beguiling mix of flawless folk, jazz, soul and country sounds with Celtic hints, plus John Martyn and Van Morrison vocal shades for good measure.
Blue Rose Code’s impressive songbook has caught the ear of many, including star Scots actor, Ewan McGregor, who guested with vocals on one And Lo!
When Blue Rose Code launched the album at Celtic Connections in January 2016, the elegant and heartfelt songs moved some in the audience to tears – but everyone was on their feet at the end of a glorious evening.
“We could not have hoped for a better opening night as Blue Rose Code are exceptional, and Ross Wilson has emerged as one of the country’s leading song writers,” said Kevin Morris, Glasgow Americana Festival director.
“His band comprises top-notch musicians who clearly love playing his music – a night to remember is in prospect.”
“Grateful for Wilson’s immense talent and craving more.” No Depression Magazine
