Robert Burns: What’s it about?

I will be hosting at least one Burns’ Supper this coming January in Aschaffenburg, Bayern which is twinned with Perth in Scotland.

A libertarian, a womaniser, a farmer, tax collector, a man of sensitivity and humanity, ‘Rabbie” was all of these things but most of all, a man of the people.

Haggis, nips n tatties will be served along with a wee brawth to start and a tidy oatcake, cream and jam to finish.

Whiskey will be available for toasting – I will try to keep the number of toasts down to a reasonable limit but there will be water… in separate glasses.

Music will be beautifully delivered by my friend and cohort, Chris Pookah who has a good stock of Burns songs that he has formed to suit his style in a very authentic and genuine way. It’s worth coming just to hear him play a few songs. And of course, a piper!

More news to come on the venues and ticket price. Let me know if you would be interested in a genuine supper to celebrate the birth, life, works and enduring influence of one of the world’s most gifted poets.

This page will grow as I come up with more stuff ready to fill it. Over the last two years I have intermittently recorded on video, still shots and memories in writing the experiences of the last two years. I do not wish to set them in order in particular but merely present them as moment along with the songs from the album where appropriate.

So I will use the posts as I can to promote the music I play and to respect the memory of Katie to whom I made the promise to “live my life without fear”. Easier said than done in this society so here is a picture of how to do it 😉 Thanks to the FRIZZ photographer for capturing this as I was playing last year at BrĂŒderschaft der Fölker on the banks of the river Main in the boutique city that is Aschaffenburg.
