Burns Evening with Ken McDonald

Burns Evening with Ken McDonald

As we move into 2016, our thoughts now turn to our annual celebration of Scotland’s National Bard, Robert Burns.  Balerno Folk Club will celebrate this with an evening of Burns’ poetry and song, not in the form of a formal supper but with a variety of performances of Burns’ work by members and invited guests.  A small taster portion of haggis, neeps and tatties will also be served during the evening.  The whole programme will, once again, be presented and co-ordinated by our own Ken McDonald.  As you know 2015 was not a good year for Ken and we wish him improving good health in the coming year.  We are truly delighted to have him organise our Burns night for us.
 
Tickets are priced at £7 for Members and £9 for Non-members.  As they are always in great demand, can I ask all interested (apart from those who are already part of the programme) to contact John Stirling (tel: 0131 449 3456 or [email protected]) by 19 January 2016.  Tickets should be paid to John in advance as we would prefer not to have to handle money on the night.
