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”
