Every lad and lassie was welcome to celebrate at Delmanor Northtown for Robbie Burns Day!
The skilled piper Gary piped in the haggis, as part of the annual tradition. Wee Donald addressed the haggis that was served with homemade soda bread and read poetry by the famous Robbie Burns.
The American Rogues gave a special performance for the audience. The world class musicians are a Canadian/American group that has electrified audiences on three continents! They often perform in support of military veterans and have played with the United States Air Force Symphony.
The talented band members have combined musical experience of over two hundred years. This expertise has resulted in multiple gold medals from the World Pipe Band Championships held in Scotland each year. The American Rogues played venues that staged musicians such as U2, Earth Wind & Fire and even Frank Sinatra. Playing for large audiences, the band impresses long-time Celtic music fans and newcomers everywhere they go. The bagpipes, bodhran and tenor drums, piano, flute, and singing were all a part of the exciting show.
The celebration of Robbie Burns day is always an emotional and historic tribute to not only the works of Robbie Burns, but also to Scottish culture in general. Whether guests and residents were native of Scotland or not, the music, food and wonderful slideshow of Scotland was a moving tribute to the beauty and history of the land. Aye! A dram of Whiskey and homemade Scottish family shortbread recipe, prepared by the Delmanor Chefs, was a fine way to pay tribute to beautiful Scotland and her most famous poet.
