Happy Burns day abdy! A wee reminder that if you’re celebrating Burns day – his poems, tunes, and songs, then you are celebrating Scots – a language in its own right. Here’s a video of Westlin Winds, filmed for St Margarets in Braemar with Michael Biggins on piano. If you’re looking for a Burns Nicht, look no further. The show I programmed and presented for Oor Vyce Virtual Burns Nicht is going live at 20:00 UK time over on the Oor Vyce Facebook and YouTube.
