How many of you will be playing at a Burns Supper?
If you are actually hosting one, you might like to register it HERE
We're actually having one in Bushmills, so you can be sure we'll be drinking ..... Lemonade!

4 in a week next week, then a "Jean Armour" night the following week!
I shall start to look like a haggis!

Maybe this will put you in the mood!

Well I'm delighted to say I attended the Burns Supper in Bushmills last night & I even got a chance to play my Fiddle.
Of course as Burns was a Fiddler himself, that was kind of appropriate.
Do most Scottish Burns Suppers have a Fiddler these days?
As it was Bushmills, Ireland we of course drank Bushmills, not Scotch!
Anyway, the evening went very well indeed & the food was absolutely wonderful.
Shame we can only get Haggis once a year over here.
As with most Burns Suppers in Ireland though, they only served a small portion of Haggis .. as a starter!
Having said that, half the folk didn't even eat the Haggis anyway, but had SOUP instead!
Going to a Burns Supper & not eating Haggis is surely a bit like going to a Roman Orgy .... & reading a book!

I'm just back from giving a mandolin workshop in Glasgow, and I'm just about to leave for a Burns Supper in Killiecrankie tonight. Aye waukin, o indeed.

Just off to my 4th Burns supper in a week tonight - surviving - not yet had a dram as driving, but won't be tonight! Supposed to be singing Braw Lads O' Gala Water, which might get a few heckles as it's in a rugby club - and NOT Gala Rugby Club!
Have only had to eat haggis twice, and last night it was very nicely done as "flying haggis" - i.e. wrapped up in chicken and in Drambuie sauce.
Jean Armour night next week, so it will be "What can a Young lassie Dae Wi' an Auld Man"!
Wey-hey, I've just minim-ised myself!
