Blue Rose Code at Celtic Connections 2018 photos and review Pauline Keightley

Blue Rose Code

Blue Rose Code (aka Ross Wilson) performed at Celtic Connections supporting Beth Orton. Ross commanded the ABC stage as he sang with a full band line up. He performed songs from his new 2017 album Water of Leith, as well as other fan favourites. In some memorable songs he connected to his Scottish roots and brought in the lovely Gaelic voices of Kathleen McInnes and Julie Fowlis – Sandaig, Passing Places, Love Is and Edina– more of this please!

Blue Rose Code

His Celtic soul sound mixes smooth rhythms appear to be influenced by John Martyn’s soul and blues and Motown. His voice and songs have soul, emotion and are filled with hope. Ross is an exciting young talent and I look forward to hearing more of him in the fuutre. . He was great fun to shoot, with the run and energy he puts into his set!
