Celtic Connections #1
Mrs CC and I managed a couple of concerts at this year's Celtic Connections
The first gig we attended was to see Tiny Ruins at the Tron Theatre.
This was a pretty random choice based on the blurb in the brochure
They are a band from Auckland, New Zealand consisting of Holly Fullbrook on vocals and Cass Basil on bass. There was also a drummer Benjamin someone or other.
I must admit we were a tad disappointed.
They play indie folk which is not unpleasant. However all their songs seemed to be a touch one dimensional.
All right in small doses I suspect
The support act was Ross Wilson from Edinburgh but now based in London who goes under the name Blue Rose Code.
A pretty interesting character as this blurb shows.
His songs were pretty good and he is worth checking out on his forthcoming British tour
Tiny Ruins - Me at the Museum You in the Wintergardens
Blue Rose Code -Boscombe Armistice (Soundcloud) I can't work out how to get the Soundcloud thingy up!
