The Men From Leith

Dick, Ross,Dean

On my holidays I picked up The Ballads of Peckham Rye by Blue Rose Code still sealed for a mere  £1.75.
The nom de plume for Ross Wilson I have seen him live on a couple of occasions and he is excellent.
He is also an interesting character having overcome addiction issues and a checkered past.

He recently got together with Dean Owens and Dick Gaughan as The Men of Leith to commemorate the re-opening of the Queens Hall in Leith.
Leith is the docks area of Edinburgh which has now been gentrified in places. Leithers do not consider themselves as coming from Edinburgh.
From interviews at the time there was talk of this not being a one off and having more collaborations in the future.
Having seen all three I sincerely hope this is the case.
