Blue Rose Code tours the UK bringing his ‘sublime’ Folk.
“Blue Rose Code is as slippery as an eel; a genre dodger; a mess of influences and contradictions. This rare display of soul and emotion will not be boxed, a sign of something special.” Spiral Earth
‘An affirmation of love that links human relationships with the natural world. As sublimely paced as Astral Weeks-era Van Morrison.’ Folk Radio UK
Edinburgh born Ross Wilson spent his creative formative years in East London, then moved to South England “to be by the sea’s energy” but it is in his homecoming that he has found where his heart is. Life wasn’t always simple for Wilson. “I have swapped one type of chaos for another” says Wilson.
Live performance is where Blue Rose Code connects strongly with their audiences; having toured the length and breadth of the UK, selling out venues wherever they go and leaving a trail of fans in their wake.
Recent festival highlights include: Celtic Connections, Edinburgh Fringe, Looe, Summer Isles, Lindisfarne, Southern Fried and Underneath the Stars.
2017 has already seen BRC play to 1000 people at Glasgow’s City Halls and an appearance on BBC Radio 2 as part of ‘Live from Celtic Connections with Mark Radcliffe’. An anticipated third self-released album is due in November.
Ross Wilson has spent most of his musical life curating; he sculpts his band to every mood and temperament in order to create the perfect happening. From attrition to intense moments of ecstatic love, Wilson’s lyrics challenge the ear and soften the heart.
As the man at the helm of Blue Rose Code, he is, part director, part sculptor…total chameleon.
