Actress Jessie Buckley performs as Rose-Lynn Harlan from the forthcoming feature film Wild Rose (premiering at the BFI Film Festival 2018), a celebration of Country Music and family life in Glasgow.
Buckley has recorded her soundtrack to the feature film as the character Rose-Lynn from the film, released on Island Records October/November. The songs, co-written by Buckley and screen writer Nicole Taylor, are raw, raunchy and pack an emotional punch that will launch the career of the character from the film; an extraordinary first for a soundtrack release. Rose-Lynn is born and bred in Scotland’s music city and tipped for fame by Radio 2 legend Bob Harris. As a young country singer from Glasgow she is looking to make her mark on both sides of the water. No US-country copyist, she is writing and singing the songs of where she’s from. Directed by War & Peace’s Tom Harper, the Wild Rose cast also includes Julie Walters and Sophie Okonedo. Jessie Buckley has previously been seen in War & Peace, Taboo, Beast and BBC’s The Woman in White. Wild Rose will be released in the UK in the November 2018.
Support from… CARLY CONNOR
Glaswegian, singer/songwriter, Carly Connor has a voice you will never forget; it rasps and yells like Janis Joplin, yearns the pain of heartache like Lucinda Williams and rages the wild fire of Tina Turner and Maria McKee. All of these souls she carries into her intimate but powerful live performance, an explosive cocktail of Country & Soul tinged with a God given natural humour.
