The absolute highlight of Celtic Connections so far! Blue Rose Code’s launch of the brand new CD ‘….And Lo! The Bird Is On The Wing’ to a packed audience last night at the Mitchell Theatre in Glasgow. Brilliant gig, with Ross Wilson at Celtic Connections.

…AND LO! THE BIRD IS ON THE WING’ is the new album from the acclaimed Scottish songwriter, Blue Rose Code (Ross Wilson). The album was previewed at a special SOLD OUT concert at 2016’s Celtic Connections and is released on 4th March 2016,


Recorded at Gran’s House Studio in the Scottish Borders and written between the Shetland Isles and rural Dorset,
‘…AND LO! THE BIRD IS ON THE WING’ features the finest Scottish Jazz and Folk musicians, Nashville Gospel singers, The McCrary Sisters, British music legend Danny Thompson and Hollywood A-lister, none other than Ewan McGregor.

Of the new record, Wilson says, “It’s an album for music fans and musicians. A challenging record, I think, and it’s
abundantly clear that the process has been undertaken away from the cynicism of any record company.

“I’m passionate about that fusion of folk and jazz and where it intersects with songwriting. Working with these musicians has been a game-changer. I may have cut my throat because there’s not really a single on here but, this is the album that I’ve written and it’s just as I wished it to be.”

Blue Rose Code performing ‘Fine Lines’ – a lovely tribute to John Martyn on the 7th anniversary of John Martyn’s death. Recorded at the launch gig for the Blue Rose Code CD ‘….And Lo! The Bird Is On The Wing’ at the Mitchell Theatre, Glasgow on 29th January 2016. Part of Celtic Connections.

Blue Rose Code is the wonderfully talented singer-songwriter Ross Wilson, accompanied by Wrenne (vocals), Colin Steele (trumpet), Wild Lyle Watt (guitar), Nico Bruce (Bass) and Angus J Lyon (keyboard).
