The calendar at www.burns250.co.uk shows about a dozen bookings. Most for the show but a few for other Burns bits I do. I am also booked up to present a 'panel' at the Burns conference at Glasgow University in January, talking about using technology to teach about Burns. See here. I will try and tie some bits of show into that too. I wear lots of hats really....musician, entertainer, teacher, lecturer, Burnsian, and have tried to combine many of them into this. I want to show that young people can be attracted to classics - like Burns work - if we as teachers use their language - which today is technology. So I have a few visits to schools planned and hopefully more to come.
