Robbie Burns Night
Robbie Burns Night will be a “Kilts ‘n’ All” Feast where Irish & Scottish Traditions will fuse into what promises to be a fantastic night’s entertainment. with the very best of Scottish Music and song being provided by The Buttons & Bows Accordion and Fiddle Club from Fyfe in Scotland and joined by a host of artists including Mary Kelly (Harp), Choral Groups and singers from Kilkenny and fine Irish musicians, this promises to be a blast of a night!
With refreshments included (I’ve heard that Haggis Pizza might be served!), who knows how this night might end? Perhaps at last we will finally learn what a Scotsman actually DOES wear under his kilt? At St Lachtain’s Church of Ireland, Freshford on Sunday August 14th at 8pm is where you just might find out. Tickets on Sale soon! Book early! Seating limited.
See you there!
