MONDAY January 25th, time to dust of your kilts for our 5th Annual, celebratory tribute to the life, works and spirit of the great Scottish “Ploughmen Poet”, Robert Burns (1759-1796). Many throughout the World are familiar with A Red, Red Rose and Auld Lang Syne sung on New Year’s Eve. It’s an evening of poetry, dining and music, all in tribute to the bard. burnsnight2015 Screenshot 2016-01-08 at 20.28.05
