One of only six dates on an exclusive UK tour by one of the UK’s finest singer songwriters, and one of the true legends of world music.

It was after attending the Glasgow leg of John Martyn and Danny Thompson’s Sunshine Boys Reunion Tour in 2001, that a young Ross Wilson (Blue Rose Code) made up his mind that he would become a musician. A couple of years later he packed up and took himself off to London to follow his heart.

In 2013 Ross was introduced to Danny Thompson via a mutual friend and Danny agreed to bring his distinctive and unmistakeable playing style to warm and ground Ross’ critically acclaimed debut album, ‘North Ten’. It was the realisation of a decade-long dream for Ross.

At the end of 2013, Ross opened for Danny and Darrell Scott in London and, following his return trip to Nashville with Bob Harris and the BBC, Ross reached out to Danny again, entreating him to perform on his follow up: ‘The Ballads Of Peckham Rye’, released in May 2014.

This time round, Ross had written songs with Danny in mind, from the ‘Inside Out’ era inspired ‘Silent Drums’, to the Tennessee stomp, ‘The Right To Be Happy’. Something very special occurred in that London studio in early 2014, and in the rehearsals leading up to the day. ‘Kindred spirits’, ‘a musical frisson’, call it what you will, there was an energy between the two, and it was decided they’d take their new show on the road.

Ross and Danny performed live together for the first time at Danny’s 75th birthday sessions in London in April and then booked a short, exclusive six-date tour in September/October. They’re performing material from the Blue Rose Code albums, and one or two surprises from Danny’s esteemed and peerless back catalogue.

The phrase ‘not to be missed’ can be mundane and over-used but, let us tell you, this is not to be missed!
