A nomad, both geographically and musically, songwriter Ross Wilson aka Blue Rose Code writes straight from – and to – the heart. His songs address universal themes of love, loss, travel, home, accepting the past and embracing the future in a deeply personal way. They are variously painted with the vibrant colours of folk, Americana, jazz, country, soul, pop and, increasingly, celtic traditions; an eclecticism that has seen him compared to John Martyn, Van Morrison and Tom Waits amongst others.
His latest, and long-awaited, album With Healings Of The Deepest Kind was released in July 2020. Self-produced for the first time, and taking his emotional honesty to new levels, it’s the most fully realised rendition of his singular vision to date. Reaction and reviews for the record have been overwhelmingly positive:
‘Healings is ravishingly beautiful, a burnished blaze of Caledonian Soul, muted jazz and poetic recitation…A bruised peach of a record.’ Uncut
‘This album should be on everybody’s end-of-year list without fail.’ Folk Radio
‘Ross’ songwriting and expressive performance are simply breathtaking. With Healings Of The Deepest Kind is an album classic.’ Louder Than War
The duration of this concert is approximately 90 minutes, with no interval.
