Saturday 26th Jan, Tigh an Truish 8pm onwards

Not the most formal Burns Supper in the land, but usually one of the most entertaining.

'Say, sing or show your thing' as an East Coast Landlady once said to me.

We bought our tickets today. Its 8pm, not 7.30 like the message at the top of the screen. Anyway can't wait. Its allways such a scream. Disappointed last year though because we didn't have the comedy cockney version of Tommy Shanter. Hopefully this year, it's soo funny in a cringey sort of way.
See you all there ? :D

There wasn't a Burns Supper at the T&T last year. And the year before that Tam o'Shanter was performed by the much missed Ian Fullarton, who of course was from Burns country. I addressed the haggis that year. I believe the last time I recited Tam o'Shanter was in 2009, and you commented on it then in a similar vein.

However, if you are coming this year then you are in luck, for I will indeed, memory willing, be performing Tam o'Shanter. I am the first to admit that my Ayrshire brogue is less than perfect, but it is how the story is told that matters.

A man's a man for a' that eh?

Great night. Probably less actually said about Burns than at most Burns Supper, but a lot about Seil, Argyll and Scotland.
