The 25th January- that date when we all go Scottish mad whilst celebrating the life of the great 18th Century people's poet, Robbie Burns. Burns Nights sprout up from late January and continue right through the first few weeks of February.
Standard piping duties at a traditional Burns Supper are centred around the Haggis ceremony
- Start of evening:
Pipe in and address the Haggis
( burns poetry, address to the Haggis )
- Main event:
Pipe out the haggis
In addition, you may like the piper to stay on and pipe another short performance during the dinner.
All things Scottish, including the Robbie Burns penned sentimental classic Auld Lang Syne- in the style of a rip rousing, hand holding sing along led by the piper.
