Friday 3rd October
Blue Rose Code and Danny Thompson
Doors open 7.30pm

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.

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!

Saturday 11th October
Andrew Weatherall & Sean Johnston – A Love From Outer Space
9pm – 3am

In just over eighteen months, A Love From Outer Space has risen out of a smoky North London basement and onto the stages of the world’s most discerning festivals and underground dance floors. What can be said about it’s creator that hasn’t been said already? Andrew Weatherall has achieved cult-like status over a 25 year career that has seen him as pioneer of the early acid house movement at London’s legendary Shoom club; producer of Primal Scream’s seminal Screamadelica album, creator of the iconic Sabresonic club, held the infamous Monday night Wrong Meeting parties with Ivan Smagghe and more recently he’s presented lauded guest spots on BBC 6Music, where he’s seen by many as the natural successor to John Peel. ALFOS, as it’s become affectionately known is described by Andrew, is an ‘oasis of slowness in a world of increasing velocity’, and along with long-time collaborator and Hardway Bros. Sean Johnston they purvey a chugging hypnotic house formula that draws influences from dub, disco & acid while sticking to their mantra of ‘never knowingly exceed 122bpm’.

The last ALFOS night at the Trades sold out super fast, so don’t leave it too late to get your tickets.
