Our Song of the Day is also a free download from Ross Wilson, better known to most of you as Blue Rose Code whose latest release The Ballads Of Peckham Rye is an Album of the Month on Folk Radio UK.
Ross has very kindly agreed to offer Oh, North as a free download, he had this to say about the song:
“First and foremost, the song was written for me. It was written as the first step towards reconciliation for me and the land that gave me breath. I’d been too long in exile and mired in rumination. At a time where politics is at the top of the agenda in Scotland, the song chimes a non-partisan bell, neither for Nationalism nor Unionism, but rather for patriotism and a shared vision of hope for the future.”
This is a wonderful record, complex and multi-faceted, musically ambitious and a powerful and poetic statement of intent. Folk Radio UK
