A Celebration of Robbie Burns Buffet and Concert
- This event has passed.
January 19, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm$10
Join us in our annual celebration of Scotland’s National Bard, Robbie Burns! Fiddler and faculty member Rosie Carver with Celtic band Blackthorn and a special guest piper feature the musical traditions of Scotland with a special focus on Burns’ songs and poems. Heart-wrenching airs and ballads, songs with rousing choruses and lively jigs and reels are brought to life with Blackthorn’s luscious harmonies and complex instrumentation.
The musical celebrations start at 7:00pm or come early at 5:30pm and enjoy a delicious small plates buffet before the show. A piping-in of the Haggis, followed by a recitation of Burns’ Address to a Haggis, round out the long-standing traditions that are a must at any Robbie Burn’s birthday celebration.
Haggis will be served at intermission for those who feel inclined to indulge in such fine Scottish fare!
