About The Event

Burns Night Ceilidh 2024 at the Soulist

The Travelling Scots are once again embracing the Soulist Stage, this time celebrating the life of Robert Burns. Burns is possibly one of the most celebrated poets around the world and his work has touched everyone whether it is one of his famous love songs or the New Year favourite “Auld lang syne” Born on 25th January 1759, we are now celebrating the 265st anniversary of his birthday. Something that happens internationally, with haggis, whisky, stories, poetry, toasts, songs and music.

Following the success of the St Andrews Ceilidh in November, the Soulist has provided the opportunity to present some of the songs and stories associated with Robert Burns by the reputed ceilidh band from Scotland, as well as having some dances, tunes, some laughs and plenty banter too! Just as Robbie would have wanted it!
