Blue Rose Code are firmly established as one of Scotland’s most dynamic and engaging live bands, with Ross Wilson and his brilliant ensemble now operating at the peak of their very considerable powers.

Blending folk, Americana, jazz and pop influences into something truly unique, Wilson's songs address universal themes in a deeply personal way that connects directly with the listener, ensuring every show is a memorable and truly uplifting experience. Celebrating ten years since the release of Wilson's debut on Reveal Records, 'North Ten' will be performed in its original sequence followed by a second set of new material and reinterpreted work from the Blue Rose Code canon.


'Algorithm Party' is a debut publication in which an utterly original, fully-formed literary voice announces itself, somehow full of life, on the page. Liverpool’s spoken-word performer Roy’s deft, articulate and startlingly observed stories veer from the comic to the calamitous in a breath, cutting to the quick of the broad swathe of people and personalities that comprise his native city, from struggling parents to small-time criminals, pent-up white-collar workers to drinkers long lost to the ale. Roy’s eye is as keen as it is generous, presenting, in the great tradition of English realism, the real lives of people up against it in all sorts of ways, muddling through, trying to make the best of it. 

“Wilson's songwriting is fantastically varied, and as witty and knowing on the one hand as it can be heartbreaking and sentimental on the other.”

"They’re surely one of the greatest live acts around right now... do yourself a favour and go."
