SUNDAY: 31 Jan @ 3pm: A Tribute to Robert Burns!
Robert Burns(also known as Rabbie Burns, Scotland's favourite son, the Ploughman Poet, the Bard of Ayrshire and in Scotland as simply The Bard)was a Scottish poet and a lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland, and is celebrated worldwide. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although much of his writing is also in English and a "light" Scots dialect, accessible to an audience beyond Scotland. He also wrote in standard English, and in these pieces, his political or civil commentary is often at its most blunt.
Join Corwyn Allen and Caledonia Skytower as they tackle his prose and poetry (some in the Scots dialect), and Marian Dragovar and Derry McMahon as they execute a few highland dances. Please note, all readings in voice, and you will not be forced to eat haggis!
