Blue Roses live songs

As far as I know, Blue Roses have only ever recorded ten songs, which means that their live sets must be quite short. Thankfully these ten songs are exquisitely beautiful, so the sets will be also be very sweet. If you want to find out how Laura Groves’ ten lovely songs translate live, you can check out upcoming gigs in Brighton and London. I’ll be finding out for myself at the Wilmington Arms on 3 June, where I’m hoping Laura will also dust off her old tune Bridges.

As a wee taster, here are a couple of tracks that Laura and co played live for Marc Riley on BBC 6 Music on Monday. You can catch the whole show on iPlayer until next week if you want to hear the accompanying chat.

    Hey thanks for these. I didn’t even know Laura was going to be on so totally missed it ! I caught her a couple of weeks ago doing an in store in Brighton and hope to see her again at the lovely Red Roaster Cafe in Brighton alongside the wonderful Dan Mangan as part of the Great Escape (better and cheaper than the Camden Crawl !)

    Dan Mangan, eh? Hadn’t heard of him till Steven Adams of the Broken Family Band was bigging him up at their gig on Thursday night. He was their first support on. I missed him of course…
