Robert Burns Supper

Join Us in Celebrating
Robert Burns' 257th Birthday
Friday, January 27, 2017

Robert Burns

(January 25, 1759 – July 21, 1796) was a poet and a lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland, and is the best-known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although much of his writing is also in English and a 'light' Scots dialect which would have been accessible to a wider audience than simply Scottish people. At various times in his career, he wrote in English, and in these pieces, his political or civil commentary is often at its most blunt. [wikipedia.org]

Buffet Dinner,
Poetry & Song
