Burns for the SNP

The Bard and I were invited to the Sands Hotel in Burntisland recently, by the SNP to help celebrate the Year of the Homecoming. A very enthusiastic crowd of around forty, including some councillors and even an MSP, enjoyed the Bard's story and a selection of his songs and poems - some more well-known than others. They were in great voice especially with Scots Wha Hae. ...seen here.
The hotel supplied a well received Taste of Scotland at the interval, which added to the enjoyment. Many positive comments were received at the end of the evening and particular favourites mentioned were Tam O Shanter and The Gowden Locks of Anna.

Extract from Fife Free Press June 11th 2009:
In his magnificent show Kev took his audience through the life of Burns using poetry and songs augmented with a Power-Point. Particular features were kev's singing of lesser-known love songs and his remarkable powers of recitation. His rendition of Tam O Shanter was truly original.
