Burns Nicht

Traditional “Address to a Haggis”

Laurence Blair-Oliphant of Ardblair and Gask performs “Address to a Haggis” at our Burns Nicht attended by a full house of members and guests.  Blair-Oliphant is known for his Highland re-enactments and Burns repertoire performed the ceremony in traditional highland dress from the1745.  Piper Andy McQueen looks on.
Laurence also did a splendid rendition of “To A Louse” to great acclaim.

  David Adam's "The Immortal memory" was indeed memorable and amusing, and Ian McMurray's "Toast to the Lassies" was splendid and witty.  Two excellent performances!

  Robin Duncan guided us through proceedings, ably supported by Kathy Cameron (Reply to the Lassies), and the vote of thanks was by Alistair Cameron.

  We enjoyed music frae twa lads frae Tealing wha's names I canna mind (Squeeze box and Guitar), much appreciated.

  A great nicht......
