Come for the concert or come early & enjoy a Scottish dinner with all the trimmings - including haggis!
Join music faculty member Rosie Carver with Celtic band Blackthorn & guest piper Jim McWilliams for this special celebration of Scotland's national bard. Blackthorn will feature the musical traditions of Scotland with a focus on Burns' songs.
From lively jigs & reels to heart-wrenching airs & ballads, you will savour Blackthorn's rendition of Scottish melodies & the intricately woven harmonies that bring this music to life in a new way, flavoured with humour & above all else, fun!
Robert Burns, born January 25, 1759, poet & lyricist known affectionately as Rabbie Burns, is the focus of world-wide celebrations by Scots & their admirers nearly 250 years later.
