At once, one of Edina's favourite sons and one of Sotland's best kept secrets. If you know, you know.
"The boy's a genius” (Ian Rankin).
Ross Wilson returns to The Queen's Hall with his Blue Rose Code and, for all of us, too long in exile from each other, we mark the end of what has been a period of extraordinary tumult and disconnection by coming together, one more time for a communion of love and light.
Praise for 'Healings Of The Deepest Kind', Blue Rose Code's latest LP:
"Healings is ravishingly beautiful, a burnished blaze of Caledonian Soul, muted jazz and poetic recitation. A bruised peach of a record" (8/10 Uncut).
"Ross' songwriting and expressive performance are simply breathtaking. With Healings Of The Deepest Kind is an album classic." (Louder Than War).
"An album touched with genius, toiled with experience and, ultimately, suffused with healing.” (Blabber'n'Smoke).
The show will open with Fat Suit, a genre-defying collective from Glasgow, whose multi-disciplined cast of musicians from jazz, folk, rock, and electronic worlds embrace a seamless mix of musical styles.
“They make the most uproarious joyful noise. One of the best bands in British music, full stop.” (BBC Scotland)
The programme is completed with writer, poet, playwright ('The Lament for Sheku Bayoh') and Edinburgh's new Makar, Hannah Lavery.
Presented by Blue Rose Code
"Seriously, can't recommend Blue Rose Code enough, cannot stop listening."
"They’re surely one of the greatest live acts around right now so if you get a chance to see them in any of their many guises do yourself a favour and go."
