Robbie Burns Night

Robbie Burns Night – Where Two Traditions Meet

Robbie Burns Night will be a “KIlts ‘n’ All” feast of fun and frolics where a Celebration of Scottish Music, Peoetry and Song will fuse with Our Irish traditions into what will certainly be a Fantastic Nights Entertainment. The cream of Scottish musicians and singers will join a host of fine Irish artists. Joining The Buttons & Bows Accordion and Fiddle Club will be the wonderful talents of :

  • Mary Kelly (Harp)
  • Jim White
  • Singer / Songwriter Paddy Fitzpatrick
  • The Suspiro Choral under the direction of Sean O Neill
  • Moira Maher
  • Noel Cleere
  • Clare Kilkenny

… AND Many More! (watch this space)

With Refreshments consisting of Traditional Scottish fare (I’ve heard that Haggis Pizza will be available),  this night will be an evening of friendship, joy, great music and a fitting end to The Big Squeeze 2016.
(Did you know that Robbie Burns wrote “Auld Lang Syne”?).

Will Starr – The Daddy of ’em All

Mary Kelly

Mary Kelly, one Ireland’s finest harpists, originally came from Freshford. Her family moved to Castlecomer and Mary now teaches in Dublin.

Mary has won numerous awards and accolades for her performances and is the holder of the prestigious Bardic Award that was presented to her by Comhaltas Ceolteoiri Eireann.

Mary has travelled the world representing Ireland and has accompanied President Mary Robinson and President Michael D Higgins on many trade missions.  Mary also performs as part of Brú Boru in Cashel Co Tipperary every year.

Mary can be found playing the harp at many state functions but she has never forgotten her roots. She took part in The Acorn Club’s 1916 Commemoration in St Lachtains Church of Ireland in Freshford in April and is committed to the Freshford and Castlecomer communities.

A harpist with heart, everyone is looking forward to hearing Mary again at “Lord Mayor’s Official Opening of the Big Squeeze” on Saturday Morning the 12th of August and also at the “Robbie Burns Night on August 14th in Freshford”
