Join us for 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 7:00 pm or come early at 5:30 pm and enjoy a small plates buffet featuring a cornucopia of tastes and flavours inspired by the cuisine of Scotland. 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!

Stay on after the concert for a meet, greet and sip with the band. The cash bar will remain open serving beer, wine and, of course, scotch whisky. For those seeking non-alcoholic beverages, soft drinks and complimentary tea and coffee will be provided. The event ends at 9:30pm.
