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

Blue Rose Code & Danny Thompson

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.

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!
