Burns Suppers

Highland piper in No1 dress

Burns Suppers

Whether formal or informal, no Burns Supper would be complete without the haggis and a piper.

The main event is piping in the haggis to a traditional Burns tune  and, after the traditional “Address to the Haggis”, piping  it out again.

In addition I can: -

  • Play for the guests as they arrive
  • Recite the “Address to the Haggis” myself.
  • Play for Scottish country dancing after the meal, e.g. Strip The Willow, Gay Gordons, Eightsome Reel, or a slow Scottish Waltz

I’ve been interested in the poetry of Robert Burns since I was at school. Some of the poems I have also recited at Burns Suppers are:

  • Tam O’Shanter
  • Tae a Mouse
  • A Man’s a Man for A’ That

“Just a short note to say Thank You for last night (Burns Supper Piping and recitation). All the team here at Woodland Park thought it was excellent and really made the evening.  I also had very good reports from clients who attended the evening and I won’t hesitate to recommend you in future”


“We can all die happy now that we have heard the definitive rendition of "Tam O’Shanter”
