A Celebration of Robbie Burns
Scottish Dinner: 6:00PM
Rosie Carver and Blackthorn Concert 7:30PM
Join music faculty member Rosie Carver with Celtic band Blackthorn and a guest piper for this special celebration of Scotland’s national bard, Robbie Burns! Blackthorn will feature the musical traditions of Scotland with a special focus on Burns’ songs.
Come for the concert at 7:30pm or come early at 6pm and enjoy a Scottish dinner with all the trimmings — yes, including haggis — and stay on for the concert. From lively jigs and reels to heart-wrenching airs and ballads, you will savour Blackthorn’s rendition of Scottish melodies and the intricately woven harmonies that bring this music to life in a new way, amply flavoured with humour and above all else, fun!
Robert Burns, born January 25, 1759, poet and lyricist known affectionately as Rabbie Burns, is the focus of world-wide cele1brations by Scots and their admirers nearly 250 years later. It is Burns’ genius that the sound and rhythm of his words, whether set to music or recited, create an emotional bond that is ageless . . . an immortal memory of everyday life as relevant today as yesterday.
