Music: Blue Rose Code

Think John Martyn meeting a young Van Morrison and you’re in the Blue Rose Code alt-folk sound- space which has a growing legion of fans that includes James Yorkston, Lou Rhodes, James Yuill and Polly Paulusma.

Formed in Edinburgh, now based in London, Blue Rose Code have honed their song writing talents on the folk circuit, often playing at the excellent Electroacoustic Club and the Union Chapel, as well as many other folk venues in the UK.

"John Martyn's inspiration is easy to hear in Blue Rose Code, an outfit whose youth belies the maturity of their sound. Tight melodies and jazzy flourishes make their sun-kissed sound one to listen out for." The Herald

"Gorgeous Celtic-inflected acoustic folk outfit." Time Out

"Really gorgeous little 7", both compositions really stand out from the acoustic troubadour playing field, making Blue Rose Code something worth keeping an eye on."
